Bledsoe's Fort Historical Park


For almost three decades, the Bledsoe's Lick Historical Association has pursued the exciting and challenging task of integrating the preservation of important archaeological and historic sites with the growth, progress and economic development of Sumner County.

Named for the mineral springs and licks so prominent in regional history and prehistory, the Association has operated, managed, and preserved Wynnewood State Historic Area, including several important historical buildings, landmarks and historical sites:

•The restored Irish Cottage of Hugh Rogan
•The mineral springs and lick
•Thomas Sharp Spencer monument
•Portions of the ancient Native American town
•Nathaniel Parker Cabin
•Hunley Cabin


   In 1992, the Association expanded its preservation efforts to include the development of Bledsoe's Fort Historical Park -- a nearly 80-acre county park which includes:

     -  The archaeological location of Isaac Bledsoe's 1780 fort.

     -  The restored Nathanial Parker cabin.
