Wynnewood, after 2008 tornado damage

Wynnewood, after tornado damage

Tornados seem to hit Tennessee in the early part of the year. 4 years ago today, it hit one of Tennessee most important log buildings.

from Wikipedia:

Wynnewood, located in Castalian Springs, Sumner County, Tennessee, is the largest existing log structure in Tennessee. It was built in 1828 by A. R. Wynne, William Cage, and Stephen Roberts, to serve as a stagecoach inn for travelers between Nashville and Knoxville. In 1834, Wynne purchased his partners' shares in the property and moved into the inn with his family, where he resided until his death in 1893.

The building has since been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is open to the public and tours are available. On February 5, 2008, during the February 2008 tornado outbreak, Wynnewood suffered major damage to parts of the second story, roof, and trees on the property.
