Inscription.  This 13 acre site was laid out as the Public Square in the 1851 Town Plat of Tullahoma, intended as a park and town meeting area. Instead, the center of town followed the depot built by the railroad. Tullahoma's first public school was built here in 1886, and the auditorium was added in 1922. It was saved by volunteers in 1979. The rebuilt Bussell-Ganoe log cabin is likely the oldest structure in the city, perhaps as early as 1850. It was moved here from South Atlantic Street.
