The Palace Theater, Fried Pickles and Swaneys Swifts - Historic Downtown Gallatin Part 1


Today we stopped by the Palace theater in Gallatin Tennessee. The Palace is the oldest silent film theater still standing in its original location in the state of Tennessee. It was opened by Bill Roths in 1913, and thrived under his hands becoming a focal point for the town until his death in the early 90's. It was the purchased at auction and donated to Greater Gallatin, who restored the theater and now 7 years later they have reopened this amazing piece of history to the community. Movies are shown weekly.

The website said they were playing black beauty, sadly once we got there we found that it was a new version they were playing and not the classic version. :( . The theater was really neat, the movie, on the other hand, was miserable.


After the movie we walked (well dashed, it was raining) up the street a little to Swaney Swifts, to have burgers and shakes. It's such a cute place! Perfect place for a girls morning out. We tried our first fried pickles today. They weren't my favorite, but they were okay. I liked the shakes better. LOL.

Gallatin Town Square is a really cute place, There are many shops and little places to eat along the walk.  We will have to come back and tell you more about all the fun places to go.
