Explore Stewart County History at the Homeplace

Local historians and families will tell their stories of Stewart County at the Homeplace at Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area on November 10, 2018.

The 1850s Homeplace Working Farm at Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area will host the third annual Stewart County History Day, 10 am – 3 pm on Saturday, November 10, 2018. Admission to the Homeplace is $5 ages 13 and up, $3 ages 5 – 12 and free for those 4 and under.

Partnering with the Stewart County Arts and Heritage Council, the Stewart County Teacher Center and the Stewart County Historical Society and Archives, the Homeplace celebrates the intriguing history of Stewart County, Tennessee. Through photos and family memorabilia, local historians will help you relive the everyday struggles and joys of living between two rivers. Displays will feature local history, the iron industry and antique tractors.

Homeplace Lead Interpreter Cindy Earls says “Family farms between the rivers, like the Homeplace, were part of a vibrant and close knit community in Stewart County, Tennessee.”

Programming for the day includes:
This Is the Way We Wash (and Iron) Our Clothes – 10 am – 3 pm
Mighty Mule – 1 – 3 pm
Riving Board to Make a Roof – 1 – 3 pm
