Live presentations of colorful 18th & 19th Century life & times.

 

  • Sunday, July 15th - 2:00 PM - Our Archaelogy professionals (and possibly students from the current Dig) will be displaying tables of 18th & 19th Century artifacts found at Bledsoe's Fort, Wynnewood, & the surrounding area.  You won't see this presentation anywhere else, so don't miss it, history lovers!

  • Sunday, September 16th - 2:00 PM - The real story of Kasper Mansker, portrayed by Colonial historian & re-enactor, Ehren Ehlert.

 

  • Sunday, October 21st - 2:00 PM - A Confederate Weekend, to be presented by Myers Brown and fellow re-enactors.  Men in uniform ... horses ... guns.  What else could you wish for on a Sun. afternoon?  Brown is Curator of Extension Services for The TN State Museum, author of TN's Union Cavalrymen and TN's Confederates.

The third Sunday program fee is included with the regular cost of admission (which includes a tour of the house).  Wynnewood is open 1:00 to 4:00 PM on Sundays, so there is plenty of time after the program for a tour.  

The cost for the presentation alone is $5.00.  Please bring a chair.

 

2016 was the Premier of the series "If These Logs Could Talk"

These programs are planned & produced by Wynnewood's Events Committee, Jane Wright Chair.

Ticket proceeds benefit Wynnewood Collections,

helping to enhance the furnishings & artifact collections within the museum.


 

 


Saturday, April 7th - Wynnewood opened for the 2018 season!

On opening day, we unveiled the newly restored OIL PORTRAIT of A.R. WYNNE. 

We hope you will visit soon to take a look, as it is simply glowing with life.  We are most grateful to Daughters of the American Revolution, General Jethro Sumner Chapter, and Questers, Sarah Michie Smith Chapter, for generously providing the funds for the portrait's professional restoration.

Bledsoe's Lick Historical Association

Annual Dinner & Meeting took place on Thursday, March 8, 2018

Old Union Church of Christ, 2505 Highway 25, Castalian Springs, TN

Samuel D. Smith, retired TN Historical Commission, spoke on earthenware and stoneware pottery produced in TN.

 


Christmas Open House on sunday, Dec 3, was such a lovely event, this year including Wynnewood, Hawthorn Hill, and the Rogan stone cottage in Bledsoe's Lick Historical Park.  Reportedly, close to four hundred visitors enjoyed our slice of history.  Special thanks to Robin Devilling who organizes the event, all our period-dressed docents, the BLHA volunteers who so tastefully decorate Wynnewood inside and out, and all those who bake and serve the homemade sweets.  Also thanks to members of the Bate family who hosted at Hawthorn Hill, to Rick Hendrix for interpreting and authentic "Possum Hunters" music, and to Jane Wright for organizing volunteers and hosting at Rogan House.  Well Done!
