Holiday Open House

Wynnewood State Historic Site

and Rogan Stone Cottage at Bledsoe's Fort Historical Park

 

Christmas.2019

 

Historic Wynnewood will open its lower floors and deck them with period decorations, plus docents in 19th Century dress will welcome you and serve refreshments to the sound of period music about the house.  Ladies of the Questers Preservation and Restoration group will hold a bake sale on this day to benefit Wynnewood.  Highlight of the day will be a book signing for the recently published "Christmas at Wynnewood," featuring George Wynne's recollections from his childhood around 1900 and John Oliver's illustrations.  Mr. Oliver will be available to sign the books; he is Trousdale County Historian and a retired teacher of art and history.  "Christmas at Wynnewood" is an 8x10 glossy soft-cover with 27 pages of original story and drawings ... a keepsake publication on sale for $12.00 to benefit Wynnewood.

You will also want to stop by the Rogan House (circa 1800), located a short distance down Hwy 25 from Wynnewood in Bledsoe's Fort Historical Park.  Period-dressed docents will greet you in the cottage with a warm fire and refreshments.  Do join us!  


"If These Logs Could Talk"

The final "Logs" event of the 2019 season took place on Oct 20, 2019. 

We are most grateful to our generous presenters, without whose love of sharing history, we'd have had no "Logs."                                           They include: John Cooper, Tonya Staggs, Ehrin Ehlert**, Cathy Lampman, Rick Hendrix, Paul & Kim Caudell**, Dr. Kevin Smith, Brian Allison**, David Britton, David Wright**, Jeff Wells, Blake Stewart, Myers Brown & friends** , Michael Agee**, Dr. Timothy Johnson, Carol & Frank Jarboe. Some of these special folks have presented more than once for us.** Apology if anyone omitted.

AND, special thanks to Jane Wright who chairs our Events Committee and to the following Committee members:  Robin Devilling, Bettye Freudenthal, Melinda Gaines, Kathleen Haynes, and Judy Miller.  These volunteers plan the events, bake the refreshments, and handle the logistics for each program.
