Munfordville abounds with history and it is clearly evident in the many architectural structures that still remain from the 19th century. The Old Munfordville Walking Tour is made up of historical buildings and sites that were either occupied during the Civil War or have a special place in the establishment of Munfordville.
Learn about the Battle and Siege of Munfordville, the Battle of Rowletts Station and the Skirmish of Woodsonville, three of the Civil War’s significant events at the Battle for the Bridge Historic Preserve.
