Saturday, April 7 10am- Wynnewood opens for 2018 !

Oil  portrait  of Wynnewood builder, newly restored,

will be unveiled at 11:00 am, Wynnewood parlor. 

At long last, Wynnewood's oil portrait of our builder, A.R. Wynne, is back from the Conservator and in a new frame.     Please join us for this festive occasion of its unveiling.  The portrait is simply glowing, as if it were just completed.  Col. Wynne would be proud.  We are most grateful to the Daughters of the American Revolution, General Jethro Sumner Chapter and Questers, Sarah Michie Smith Chapter for generously donating the funds for the portrait's professional restoration.

Our 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 baked and served the homemade sweets.  Also thanks to members of the Bate family who hosted at Hawthorn Hill and to Jane Wright for organizing volunteers and hosting at Rogan House.  Well Done!
