A visit to Cragfont is a step into the past, combining both cultural and architectural history. Started in 1798 and completed in 1802 by General James Winchester, Cragfont was the finest mansion house on the Tennessee frontier. The house typified the grandeur and style of the best of the late Georgian period homes. General Winchester, who was a close friend of Andrew Jackson, named his mansion “Cragfont” as it stood on a rocky bluff with a spring at its base.
