Post Card Tuesday: Home of Sgt. Alvin York - Pall Mall, TN



For this week's post card, we have a linen-era card labelled as the Home of Sergeant Alvin C. York, of World War Fame, Pall Mall, Tenn. "Photo by Tenn. State Dept. of Conservation." This card was probably designed before World War II, or the title would have described Sgt. York of World War I fame, instead of just World War. He lived until 1968, so he would have still been living here at the time.

Here is a photo of the home today:

The area is now known as the Sgt. Alvin C. York State Historic Site and includes the home, his burial site and the mill across the street where he worked. Today, the home is preserved as a museum, displaying several York artifacts and exhibits. The home and State Historic Site are conveniently located on US Highway 127 in Fentress County in the small town of Pall Mall, which on some maps may be listed as Wolf River.
