A DREAM COME TRUE… "615 Candle Lab is a dream come true for me to open my own shop of creative ideas to share with family, friends and new friends. Creating your own candle by choosing your favorite vessel to add a unique fragrance that you love, with friends, drinks and laughter is what the experience is all about. Growing up in Mt. Juliet my whole life, I’ve always loved the old building beside the railroad tracks. Well, now I get to share it with you. The oldest building in Mt. Juliet is now my newest shop to share with you. I have made connections with local artists for unique candle vessels for you to choose from, along with the incredible pieces the local artists create to sell in the shop. These items include paintings, hand-crafted ceramic pieces, blown glass jewelry and much more. I hope you enjoy your experience of making your own candle and your time with friends. Please plan to come back to make more candles and also shop the unique retail." Amy Hammer

In 2005, Scott and Rebecca Paschal had the opportunity to purchase the remaining 100 acres of Scott's family farm. The Paschals had farmed this portion of land for decades and lived in the Brush Creek community for seven generations. In 2006, Scott and his father, Tom planted several acres of grapes with plans to become commercial wine grape growers. However with a change in Tennessee state law, it became apparent that eventually the farm needed to develop into a farm winery. With lots of work from their three sons, Scott and Rebecca began to build the infrastructure needed to start a small farm winery. In 2015, on Easter Saturday, Scott, Rebecca and their family opened Cellar 53 Winery to the public. A majority of the wines produced use Tennessee grown fruit with the majority being grown on the eight acres of grape and blackberry vineyards. Come visit! Thursday through Sunday - Noon to 6 pm. Also, the winery is available for small private tastings. Just give us a call! Currently, the winery does not rent out event space for weddings or any other private event or party.

Sellars Farm is a Mississippian Period town site near Lebanon, Tennessee. It's a state archaeological area and is managed by Long Hunter State Park. It's open from 8:00 am to sunset every day. Sellars Farm is open to the public for self-guided walking tours, and park rangers from Long Hunter occasionally give guided tours. The walking distance on the trail is approximately 1.4 miles over fairly level ground. Most of the length of the trail is under trees or has intermittent shade. About .5 miles is completely exposed to the sun during warm months when the trees are filled out; that exposure would increase a bit in the late fall and winter after the trees lose their leaves. Clean portable restrooms are located near the beginning of the trail. An informational kiosk, designed by Dan Webber, at the entrance to Sellars Farm gives an excellent illustrated overview of the Mississippian Culture Period and the Sellars Farm site. Tour brochures are available at the kiosk that include a map and guide to the site, with numbered points corresponding to markers along the trail that explain the site's features. Visitors interested mainly in hiking or experiencing nature should enjoy the walking trail. The trail is kept mowed down, but the rest of the area is left natural. In the spring and summer the ancient man-made earthworks are hard to see under the heavy foliage, even the large platform mound, but the plants and flowers are in full view.
