Webb School Arts & Craft Show

This weekend, The Webb School in Bell Buckle, TN held its annual arts and craft show.  Held annually on the third weekend of October, the show attracts between 80,000-100,000 people to the tiny town about 40 minutes south of downtown Nashville.  While the Webb School holds a juried show on one of its lots, there are additional vendors located on all the streets throughout the town.

The Webb School, founded in 1870, is the South's oldest continuously operating boarding school. (There is also a day school.)  There are four dorms on the campus - two each male and female - housing students in grades 7-12.  Students in sixth grade do not board.  You can read more about it by clicking here.   NOTE:  Actor Wayne Rogers (Trapper John from M*A*S*H) is a Webb School alum.

Over the next few days, I'll show you a little more of Bell Buckle.

I guess it the Webb School has nothing to do with the World Wide Web. But then I found it online...

And learned a lot more. I just assumed at first glance it was some school on the Internet with a history less than a decade old.
