Crossville, Tennessee

Crossville is a city in and the county seat of Cumberland County, United States. It is part of TN Micropolitan Statistical Area; the population was 10,795 at the 2010 census. Crossville developed at the intersection of a branch of the Great Stage Road, which connected the Knoxville area with the Nashville area, the Kentucky Stock Road, a cattle drovers' path connecting Middle Tennessee with Kentucky and extending south to Chattanooga; these two roads are paralleled by modern US-70 and US-127, respectively. Around 1800, an early American settler named Samuel Lambeth opened a store at this junction, the small community that developed around it became known as Lambeth's Crossroads; the store was located at what has become the modern intersection of Main Street and Stanley Street, just south of the courthouse. By the time a post office was established in the 1830s, the community had taken the name of "Crossville". In the early 1850s, James Scott, a merchant from nearby Sparta, purchased the Lambeth store and renamed it Scott's Tavern.

When Cumberland County was formed in 1856, being nearest the center of the county, was chosen as county seat. Scott donated the initial 40 acres for the erection of a town square. Crossville and Cumberland County suffered rampant pillaging throughout the Civil War as the well-developed roads made the area accessible to both occupying Union and Confederate forces and bands of renegade guerrillas. With divided communities and families, there was vicious guerrilla warfare, residents suffered as if there were major battles in the area; the county was divided throughout the conflict, sending a equal number of troops to both sides. After World War I, U. S. 70 helped connect the area to markets for its produce and goods. Additional highways built after World War II improved transportation in the region. During the Great Depression, the federal government's Subsistence Homestead Division initiated a housing project south of Crossville known as the Cumberland Homesteads; the project's purpose was to provide small farms for several hundred impoverished families.

The project's recreational area would become the nucleus for Cumberland Mountain State Park. Crossville was a sundown town as late as the 1950s, with a sign at the city limits warning African Americans not to stay after nightfall.

The family spend time sheltered in their cave. One night, while her family is asleep, Eep sneaks out when she sees what she discovers to be a torch of fire, she encounters an inventive modern human boy named Guy and his pet sloth Belt, he warns her of an impending apocalypse and offers to take her with him, but concerned for her family, Eep stays, getting a shell horn from him to blow in case she needs his help. Reuniting with her frantic family, Eep tries to tell them what Guy told her, but fearing things that are "different" and "new", they destroy her horn.

A massive earthquake destroys their home, to avoid carnivores and omnivores, they descend into a tropical forest that lay hidden behind their cave all the time. Encountering a "Macawnivore", a brightly colored feline with nyctophobia that Eep's grandmother Gran dubs "Chunky", the family flees him until he is scared off by swarms of piranhakeets that devour a ground whale. Using another horn, Eep calls to Guy. After a great deal of confusion regarding their first contact with fire, Grug imprisons Guy in a log until he can guide them somewhere safe. Guy suggests the Croods go to a mountain where there are caves because the Crood family desires a cave. Grug refuses at first; the other Croods were worried that they would get tired and bicker. When Grug finds a bird, he decides to hunt its egg for dinner. Eep wants to hunt the egg, but as she's grounded, she gets replaced by her younger brother Thunk, too tired to hunt it. Grug and Thunk fail to capture the bird's egg, so they get a scorpion instead.

During a fight between Thunk and Gran, Eep notices stops him. Guy wants Eep to stop, so he asks her hunt with him. Eep goes with Guy to hunt. Eep and Guy make a trap in order to capture the bird but fail when the two get tangled up, the bird doesn't step in the trap; the bird throws him up in the sky until he lands on the log. Grug asks Guy where Eep is, he finds her being chased by the bird. Grug gets angry but doesn't notice that he was about to step on the trap, so Eep pushes him out to save her father; the bird is thrown up in the sky until it crash-lands on the ground. The Croods cook the bird, Guy is tied up with a root chain on his left leg. After dinner, Grug tells them a story, based on a true story, about a tiger, similar to Eep and embarrasses Eep. Guy says that his stories never end up like Grug's stories, so the Croods decide to listen to Guy's story much to their interest. Guy tells them about a tiger who flew into a place with more suns in the sky called “Tomorrow”. Guy tells them stories of "Tomorrow", a heaven of safety where he is headed and in which curiosity is not deadly as Grug has claimed.

Outrunning the destruction, Guy is trusted enough to be let out of the log, he gives the Croods rudimentary shoes to walk over the harsh landscape as he leads them to a mountain in which he says will be safe.

Reaching the mountain, Grug tries to force his family to hide out in a cave, but they resist, telling him that they can't live in caves anymore, that they don't want to survive but to live; this enrages Grug, who places blame on Guy and tries to beat the answer out of him, but they both end up in a tar flow where Grug learns that Guy's family had perished in one.
