Historic Site: Wynnewood State Historic Site

Wynnewood State Historic Site, located in Castalian Springs, Sumner County, Tennessee, includes the largest existing log structure in Tennessee. The main building–110 feet long and 22 feet wide–was built in 1828 by A. R. Wynne, William Cage, and Stephen Roberts, to serve as a stagecoach inn for travelers between Nashville and Knoxville. In 1834, Wynne purchased his partners’ shares in the property and moved into the inn with his family, where he resided until his death in 1893.

A grouping of six log buildings, the main one and five dependencies, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971 and declared a National Historic Landmark, later that year.
