Shadley Associates is providing planning and landscape architectural services for Jack Daniel’s Distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee. SA’s Master Plan prioritizes preservation of the landscape while accommodating the competing needs of a major tourist attraction and a world-class production facility.
Shadley Associates has provided full services for four major projects constructed at the distillery: Jack Daniel’s original office and the entrance to his famous Cave Spring were both reconstructed, enhancing their function and appearance, while adhering to National Historic Register standards. The Visitor’s Center entry courtyard was significantly improved and a stone dining terrace with extensive plantings was added.
Two completely new structures were also added to the grounds. The Mulberry Creek Footbridge, connecting the Distillery to Lynchburg Village, was designed to convey the manufacturing heritage of the Distillery and to withstand the frequent flooding of the creek. The Barbeque Pavilion, a large stone and timber structure with extensive placed “outcroppings” and a 40' tall stone fireplace provides a scenic gathering space for up to 500 people at a time.
The Jack Daniel’s Distillery received a Design Award from the Tennessee Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects and the Jack Daniel’s Barbeque Pavilion received a Design Award from the Alabama Council of The American Institute of Architects.
