Winters Cave on Wessyngton

One of Robertson County Tennessee’s earliest settlers, Caleb Winters spent his first winter in a cave located on Wessyngton. Caleb was said to be an excellent hunter and lived on wild game. A creek running near the cave was called Caleb’s Creek in his honor. Winters later built a cabin across the creek from the entrance to the cave. The property was sold to Joseph Washington and remained in the Washington family until 1983.
