MBA Airnasium and Campground

Montgomery Bell Academy (MBA), a Nashville-based, all-boys school located off Harding Road, selected J&S Construction to erect a new 7,200 square-foot, open-air gymnasium and campground at the school’s Long Mountain property in McMinnville. Just 90 minutes from the main campus, the 200 acres of pristine land sets on a beautiful mountain top and is comprised of an observatory, playing fields, disc golf course, lakes, hiking trails, and high and low ropes courses.

The campground’s newest expansion includes a kitchenette, stone fireplace, storage room, projection screen, basketball/volleyball court, and a unique campground that consists of eight yurts, a bathhouse, and three pairs of bunkhouses that are connected with wood decking. The airnasium is slab-on-grade and primarily consists of glulam timbers. The mezzanine within the structure is wood framed with V-grooved Hardie® siding. The bathhouse and bunkhouses are positioned on concrete footers with painted CMU skirting.

The majority of the recent campground overlooks a beautiful lake and the observatory.

MBA, the only all-boys school in Middle Tennessee, was founded in 1867. MBA’s long history is intricately woven into a vision and mission of developing “Gentlemen, Scholars, Athletes,” and keeping current in its world. For more information, visit MBA’s website at
