A state oversight group announced Tuesday the inclusion of eight Tennessee properties to the National Register of Historic Places. One of the eight is located in Greene County.

The Blue Springs Lutheran Church and Cemetery in Mosheim is now listed among the prestigious estates across the U.S., according to a report from the Tennessee Historical Commission.

The cemetery pre-dates the church, which was erected in 1893, and the THC said the property is a "good example of an ecclesiastical design that combines elements of the Folk Victorian and Gothic Revival styles."

Information provided by the church says the original pastor, the Rev. Francis Marion Harr, is also recognized as the building's architect and builder.

Other sites making the list include The Tennessee War Memorial in Davidson County and Pottsville General Store in Maury County which is now used as a restaurant.
