The Bledoes Lick Historical Association has worked to preserve the Wynnewood Stage Coach Inn and other sites including several important historical buildings, landmarks and historical sites: Wynnewood, the original mineral springs and lick; Thomas Sharp Spencer monument, and portions of the Castalian Springs Mound Site -- a native American town dating to A.D. 1250.
