Welcome to the Castalian Springs Resort! A National Historic Landmark and the largest 19th century log structure in Tennessee, Wynnewood State Historic Site sits as a rare example of the early tourism and hospitality industry. Built circa 1830, Alfred and Almira Wynne  hoped to entice travelers and capitalize on their proximity to the main road by advertising the healing reputation of their natural mineral spring . Seated on a hill overlooking the spring, the resort fluctuated in popularity over the years and saw a resurgence in 1899. Stop by  to see this unique architectural gem and hear stories of the guests and residents of this quirky resort. 

The property also features the perfect hilltop view of a preserved Mississippean mound site, dated to circa 1000 AD and preserved by the Tennessee Historical Commission. The history of the mound site and its creators is included on the guided tour.
