September's topic is about abandoned places. Do you have abandoned places near you that itch your curiosity about what happened and why? Does your imagination take over? Are these places haunted? What stories do you imagine?
I live on a street named after a Tennessee historical site, Wynnewood House. The building of this beautiful two-story log structure was started in 1828 and probably not finished until a year or so later as a stage stop and mineral springs for those traveling the Avery Trace, at the time, the main east-west road across the state. The complexity of the architecture surely took quite a while due to the size of the building. Because of my interest in writing western historical novels, I'm fascinated by this structure that has become an historic museum of sorts. Guided tours open to the public, allow people a glimpse back in time by perusing the site. I've borrowed the description from a blog that appears to have become defunct...Kenny's Sideshow describes Wynnewood:
