Bledsoe Fort Park
Take the self-guided walking trail around the 80-acre Bledsoe Fort Park and experience the history of one of Middle Tennessee’s first settlements. You’ll see the restored 1790 cabin of Nathaniel Parker; a 1790s Irishstyle stone cottage; Bledsoe’s Lick, a prehistoric natural spring; the archaeological outline of Bledsoe’s Fort, ca. 1780; the Isaac Bledsoe family cemetery and more. It’s a great place to get a first-hand understanding of the area’s longhunter heritage, and venue of the annual Bledsoes Fort Colonial Fair each May.
