Campbell Station Inn and Ralph McGill Memorial Plaza

The Town purchased the Campbell Station Inn and the surrounding 2.26 acres in 2012 because of the site's rich history and prominent location. Phase 3 of the renovation of the property, the creation of Mayor Ralph McGill Plaza, was completed in late 2020. It is available for public rental.

The next phase of improvements will be deciding on a future use for the inn and restoring the interior to suit the new use. Feedback for the future use of the inn was solicited from the public via two open houses and social media in winter of 2019.

Community Heritage Trail

A Capital Investment Program project, the Community Heritage Trail features 11 signs throughout Founders Park at Campbell Station which highlight the historical milestones of the Farragut and Concord areas from the earliest American Indian inhabitants to the founding of the Town of Farragut. The project began as an initiative by Mayor Ralph McGill and was realized by a volunteer group comprised of Farragut Museum committee members as well as community members who worked for more than 18 months researching and compiling information and photos for the signs.
