A Destination

In 1780 explorer and settler Kasper Mansker built Mansker's Fort in Middle Tennessee. Located along Mansker Creek near a fork of the Cumberland River, the fort was built of logs and protected travelers along the road from Indian attacks. While the original fort burned down in 1781, Mansker and a group of settlers returned in 1783 and built a bigger fort able to accommodate more people. The new fort was known as Mansker's Station. One visitor was future president Andrew Jackson, and on one of his visits there he met his wife, Rachel. Mansker's Station still stands today and includes a blacksmith shop, livery stable. living history demonstrations, and a museum, each giving visitors a glimpse into the past. 

Now, generations later, a descendant of those Tennessee frontiersmen has built a second Mansker Station out of logs in Walden, Colorado. Since Indian attacks are a thing of the past, the station caters to weary travelers looking for great food, a glimpse of history, and maybe a beer or two.

The wood-fired experience

Many people ask how our pizza comes out so great. Three main attributes go into our pizza:

  • First: The dough. Our dough is made fresh daily and we also use an Italian flour created just for pizza.
  • Second: All fresh ingredients. Our vegetables are cut fresh daily and our sauteed mushrooms are prepped each morning.
  • Third: The wood-fired oven. We heat up our oven to 650-750 degrees. The higher temperature allows us to bake a pizza at a much faster rate. By doing so, we eliminate the build up of grease from the meats and cheeses, allowing the true flavor of the ingredients to pop.
