The Bledsoe?s Fort Historic Park is a local park and historic site in Castalian Springs, Tennessee. It features the Bledsoe?s Fort, also known as the Bledsoe?s Station, an 18th century frontier fort.

Bledsoe?s Fort was built by Sumner County pioneer, Isaac Bledsoe, whom the fort was named after. It was constructed in the 1780s in order to protect the area?s settlers and migrants from Native American attacks. It is one of the series of outposts constructed in the area and also served as a stopover along Avery?s Trace, the main road that connects East and Middle Tennessee at the time.

The Bledsoe?s Fort Historical Site was created in 1989 by the county?s residents and descendants of Bledsoe. It protects the fort?s excavation site and features several historic structures including the Hugh Rogan Cottage and the Nathaniel Parker Cabin.
