A Bit About Our Community…
Our community is spread out on 45 acres. Before this became CPF in late 2008, the property was part of TeeMar Farm. Dr. Tom Pryse, Sr. and his wife Mary purchased this farmland back in 1965. Dr. Pryse was a well-known dentist here in Farragut and Mary was a renowned flower gardener. They, along with children Tommy and Tegwyn, loved the farm life. Dr. Pryse supported the farm with his dental practice. Son Tommy wanted to become a farmer, but his wife Marie wanted to raise their kids with horses. Daughter Tegwyn has continued the tradition along with her own children by boarding horses and giving riding lessons.
In the early days here when our community was new, sometimes the horses would break loose from their corral and wander over to the area of our “Phase 3” property. Barb Moseley would call either Tegwyn or her brother to come and retrieve them. The Moseleys could watch the horses grazing and running back to the barn along the back strip that is now the walking path. There were coyotes howling some evenings and wild turkeys even coming up to a little fountain Barb and Tom had at the time to drink during hot summers. There were skunks, raccoons, rabbits, owls, nesting ducks, and hawks. There also were rats from the farm infesting the property; hence those little rock-like traps that used to hold poison to kill the rats. Of course, the hawks did a good job grabbing rats and rabbits. Now with the community completed, most of the wildlife have moved on.
The earliest residents began moving here at the end of 2009/ start of 2010. They included: LaVerne Adams, Bob & Barbara Farrell, Sharon & Tommy Heckler, Linda & Wayne Fogle, Elaine & Clark Brekke, Chrissy Goss, Elizabeth Breazeale, Jane & Phil Serrano, and Tom & Barb Moseley. Most are still here! These residents worked together and played together! There was a lot of hands-on landscaping done in those first years (not what you’d call ‘maintenance-free’ 😉 ), but there was also Canasta and progressive dinner parties, and Clark signed up CPF for the Adopt-a-Mile program.
