Accommodations for Private Picnics, Gatherings, Weddings, Games, and More

Small Gatherings and Special Events at the Historic Hodge House

Built by the Hodge family around 1811, the Hodge, Northern, Cartwright, and Sawyer families lived on and loved this land until 1928 when it became part of Percy Warner Park.

Carefully restored in 2007, with the help of Metro Parks of Nashville, Friends of Warner Parks, the Historic Commission, and local contractors, the Hodge House offers a unique venue for historic programming, environmental education, and special occasions.

Do you have Hodge House history to share? We’d love to hear it.
The Warner Park Nature Center is continuously gathering informal historical records about this venue. Email WPNC With Your Stories.

Historic Picnic Shelters

Originally built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) during the 1930s and 1940s, there are 11 shelters in Edwin Warner Park as well as 14 throughout the Beech Woods, Deep Well, and Indian Springs areas in Percy Warner Park which can be enjoyed by park visitors and reserved for events.

Recently restored by Friends of Warner Parks with over $500,000 in fundraising, these shelters have long been featured attractions and are among the most significant historical assets of Warner Parks.
