LMU Springhouse and Amphitheatre The Springhouse was originally constructed near Tiprell, Tennessee, in 1892, as a source of mineral water from the Hamilton Springs, in association with the Four Seasons Hotel and Sanatorium, a health and vacation resort located at Harrogate, Tennessee. It was this beautiful stone spring house that the LMU Class of 1936 chose to move to the campus. A contract was negotiated with Charles J. Smith of Cumberland Gap to take down the stone in such a manner that it could be reconstructed onsite. It is a memorial dedicated to Madame Francis Eppinger, Lincoln Memorial University Instructor in German, 1914 to 1936. The memorial committee was composed of the following members: Cran B. Baldwin, Manager; Herman H. Perry, Associate Manager; Ira B. Wilson, Asst. Manager; J. Beryl Crawford, Secretary; and Welborne L. Baldwin, Treasurer. The Amphitheatre known as the "Under the Stars" Theatre, was a project of the Class of 1937; it was also moved to the campus from Tiprell and built under the direction of Earl Hobson Smith, Head of the Speech and Drama Department, Lincoln Memorial University, 1926 to 1969. Several outdoor commencements, special events, theatrical productions and concerts have been held at this location. Both structures are located between Avery Hall and the President's Home.
