National Treasure Restored
Drum roll for Mike and Wanda Day of Telford, Tennessee for renovating a dilapidated farm house that played an important role during the Battle of Limestone Station, Tennessee on September 8, 1863. The house at 138 Davy Crockett Road, Limestone, Tennessee has been a family project since the Day’s family purchased it in 2006. Three generations of their family have worked on the ca 1825 home that local legend says served as an infirmary to the wounded Union Army after the Battle of Limestone Station. A Tennessee historical marker was placed near the home on October 20, 2000. I first saw the house on a visit to nearby Jonesborough during the 2007 National Story Telling Festival. The Spring House at the rear of this house became the cover for my first book in the Westward Sagas series (Spring House – ISBN 0-9777484-0-5 – Plum Creek Press). I look forward to seeing the restored home on my next trip to Tennessee.
Job Well Done!
