On Puppy's spring break in 1999, we went on a tour of Sumner County and this was one of the old buildings we saw that day. Since it was so early in the year, most of them were closed but the caretaker of Wynnewood saw us walking around the grounds and gave us a private tour. Southern hospitality in its finest.
This building was built in 1838 and served as a stop on the way to and from Nashville. President Andrew Jackson stayed there. After its tour as a Inn, it was a private residence. Mimi as a young girl when with her Aunt Byrd to visit the owners and can remember sitting out on the front porch as the elders visited.
The tornado made the big trees look like matches scattered along the ground and some of the second floor is no longer there. I hope any of the old precious items that have been blown far away, come back for future display after it is repaired.
Wynnewood is located on highway 25 in Castalian Springs and that was one of the small area that was hit the hardest. As the vilian black cloud crossed our state, it got worse and wider on each stop. Castalian Springs was next to the last hit , and then the full rage hit Macon County.
The Kitty Justice is that we can repair Wynnewood but cannot restore the lives lost that night
