Monday-Thursday, 32 hours per week…
The Community - McMinnville, TN
If you're looking for a spot that is off the beaten path, look no further than McMinnville, Tennessee. McMinnville is located almost exactly halfway between Nashville and Chattanooga, Tennessee. Today, Warren County is best known as the Nursery (plants) Capital of the World. With hundreds of nurseries offering both wholesale and retail shopping, Warren County is a landscaping hobbyist's dream. Yet, trees and shrubs is not all Warren County has to offer! The Black House The oldest remaining residence in McMinnville was built in 1825 by Jesse Coffee and was distinct in its time due to its exterior brick construction. The Black House, situated on the southeast corner of Main and High streets in the downtown business district, gained the name by which it is best known through the ownership and occupancy of Dr. Thomas Black and his family. The house where Dr. Black practiced medicine was deeded by his descendant, the late Jean Leonard, to The Eagle Club which began restoration of the structure in the early 1980s. Cumberland Caverns: Tennessee's Largest Show Cave With more than 32 known miles and many more estimated miles of virgin cave, Cumberland Caverns is one of the most extensive caves in Tennessee. Aaron Higginbotham, a surveyor, first discovered the cave in 1810. Unfortunately, Higginbotham entered the cave alone and became trapped on a ledge when his lantern went out. Local legend says that, when the rescue party reached him, his hair had turned white, presumably out of fear. Since then, Cumberland Caverns has played a major role in events such as the Civil War, the War of 1812, and the War Between The States.
