Tri-Cities TN/VA: Clear sky, 30.2 °F
Embree House & Farm, Telford TN
The Appalachian RC&D Council invites you to an Anniversary Weekend Celebration: Friday & Saturday, October 11th and 12th, 2013, with special guest Donna Sue Groves. This promises to be glorious fall evening on the grounds of the historic Embree House and Farm, Telford Tennessee. A Farm to Table will feature wine from northeast Tennessee paired with fresh farm ingredients from our 6-county region, prepared by the gourmet chefs at Tributary Restaurant (Mountain City), served by the creek across from the Embree Quilt Barn, under autumn twilight. The Embree stone house, built circa 1791, is on the National Historic Register, and is one of the oldest homes in Tennessee. The farm has played a role in the lives of Davy Crockett, John Sevier, anti-slavery leader Elihu Embree, and was on the Underground Railroad. Guests can take advantage of tours of the house and farm. Live music, and Silent Auction. We will be joined by special guest Donna Sue Groves, of Adams County Ohio, founder of the original Quilt Trail in Ohio, and connector of arts and communities. We will recognize Council members, staff, volunteers, and supporters who through out the years have made it possible for the RC&D to become the advocate for the "local lands" and "local hands" of our region. Advance reservations requested, go to www.ARCD.org. $75. 00 Suggested Donation. All proceeds continue the Quilt Trail and the Appalachian RC&D's programs to keep rural economy strong and sustainable. Thank you for your support. If you would like more information, or register over the phone, please call the RC&D office at (423) 979-2581.
