NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Governor Bill Haslam and his wife, Crissy, are hosting their third annual "Tennessee's Home for the Holidays" open house at the governor's mansion in Nashville.

Tours began Monday and will run through December 14.

This year's theme is "Tennessee Legends," showcasing influential historical figures like President Andrew Jackson, frontiersman David Crockett and Sequoyah, who created the Cherokee alphabet.

It also features contemporary figures like Dolly Parton and Pat Summitt.

The decorations include Crockett's hunting rifle called "Old Betsy" and a Cherokee hunting jacket illustrating the type of clothing worn during Sequoyah's time.

Students ranging from elementary school to college also contributed ornaments to trees on the grounds of the residence.
