Note: The Welcome Center was torn down in early 2010
to make way for a new interchange.
The Welcome Center will be reconstructed in a slightly different location.
Note: the above address is for mail only. Passenger cars cannot enter the Welcome Center from Lake Spring Road. (There is a locked gate that only service vehicles can use.) To reach the Center, passenger cars must go to Franklin, Kentucky, and enter I-65 southbound at exit 2.
The State of Tennessee, Department of Tourist Development, operates an official Welcome Center just inside the Tennessee state line. Visitors traveling south on I-65 can pull off into the welcome center where they will find rest rooms, vending machines, maps and tourist information.
