Wynnewood


Wynnewood is just one of the many amazing places to visit in Tennessee. Located in Castilian Springs Tennessee. Wynnewood is most likely the largest 19th-century log structures constructed in the area during 1828. 



It was built by A. R. Wynne, William Cage, and Stephen Roberts as a stagecoach inn, but was later turned into mineral springs. The mineral springs at Wynnewood are part of a sulfur lick found in 1772 by Isaac Bledsoe a Virginia long hunter.




It is a beautiful place to stop with your family to check out the local history and enjoy some of the beautiful scenery of Tennessee. Also a great stop for homeschoolers!



This was such a gorgeous day to be out and about.


Cheyenne and Grandma at Wynnewood


You can tell we have been going here for awhile. It was a great experience and brought to life our history lessons.


 Here is the building after the repairs to it were finished.


Watch that first step! It's a Doozie! They had torn out the porch and were preparing it for re-building.


Look at the lines of the wood on this toward the middle of the building. Kind of makes me dizzy a little bit. 


In 2008 a tornado ripped through Wynnewood destroying part of the structure, it has since been rebuilt The building above was before the tornado.

Here is a photo we took just after the tornado.  You can see how much damage that it had. So sad.
