    Lew Wallace, the Civil War Union general and author of "Ben Hur," once wrote this about Dover, Tenn.: "It was a village unknown to fame, meager in population, architecturally poor." Little has changed in 155 years. Located 67 miles west/northwest of Nashville on the Cumberland River, this town would in most cases be bypassed by people on their way to the home of country music.
