The Community

The city of Winchester is conveniently located in southern Tennessee. Three major metropolitan areas (Huntsville, Chattanooga and Nashville) are within convenient driving distance, each offering a host of cultural, recreational and entertainment activities. The community features top-rated schools, both public and private. The economy is strong and growing steadily, thanks to major employers such as Nissan, Shaw Carpets and Arnold Engineering. Within a short distance is The University of the South, located on a beautiful 10,000-acre campus atop the Cumberland Plateau in Sewanee, Tennessee. This nationally acclaimed liberal arts college also offers graduate studies in theology. The area around Winchester was once used extensively by Native Americans as a hunting and fishing territory. Archaeological excavations in the region have uncovered numerous artifacts and sites.

Recreation

Winchester surrounds beautiful Tims Ford Lake, which attracts visitors from miles around for its wonderful fishing, boating and water skiing. The 10,700-acre lake is one of the most picturesque in Tennessee and is regarded as one of the top bass fishing and recreational lakes in the Southeast. Year-round fishing also provides a substantial yield of bluegill, catfish and crappie. The park has almost five miles of paved trails that allow the hiker and cyclist to explore its natural surroundings. Tims Ford State Park has a beautiful, L-shaped swimming pool, one of the largest in the Tennessee State Park system, with a 12-foot diving pool, children’s wading pool and a bathhouse. Tims Ford State Park also has a 52-site campground, with water and electric hook-ups at each site. The Bear Trace at Tims Ford is a 6,790-yard golf course designed by The Golden Bear, Jack Nicklaus. The course has received widespread acclaim, including being named one of the “Top Ten Places You Can Play” by Golf Magazine and one of the “Best New Destinations” in Tennessee. Situated on a peninsula surrounded by Tims Ford Lake, this bent-grass, links-style par 71 course has been described by one national publication as a “glittering newcomer.” Just down the road in Lynchburg is the Jack Daniels Distillery, the nation’s oldest registered distillery and a favorite tourist destination.
