A stop on the Tennessee Civil War Trails, Bethesda Church, a quaint old building with high-backed pews and an enclosed pulpit, is one of the oldest churches in this section of the state. The church was used as a hospital for wounded soldiers by both the Union and Confederate armies and for a short time. Along with graves dating back to the 1700’s, there are approximately 82 unknown soldiers buried in the cemetery. A kiosk is located on the site providing information about the Civil War as well as local history of the Lakeway area. Bethesda Church still hosts an occasional worship service.

This historic house, formerly known as the Nenney House, was occupied during the winter of 1863-64 by General James Longstreet. It has been painstakingly restored to serve as a museum and centerpiece of the Civil War tour in East Tennessee. Adjacent to the house is the office of General Joseph Kershaw which originally sat 1/2 mile from Longstreet’s headquarters. The building was donated and moved to the Longstreet site when its original location became an industrial park. The gift shop located next to the museum also contains an excellent Tennessee history reference library. The museum hosts several special events throughout the season.
