A theme-park/resort that looks eerily similar to The Shire is slated to open in Knoxville, Tennessee in 2020.
Tom Boyd [father of former gubernatorial candidate Randy Boyd] says Ancient Lore Village of Boyd Hollow will be based on his book, The Bobbins: Outcast to the Inner Earth.
Ancient Lore Village will feature 100 'ground dwellings' and 50 treehouses, as well as a restaurant, 500-person event center and an outdoor amphitheater, according to the resort's website.
If you'd like to read the book that the park is based on, check out the link below. It's not only free, but a super quick read [as it's only 77 pages long].
