  AREA VETERANS TO BE HONORED IN NEW EXHIBIT
 MONTEREY—The Monterey Depot Museum, located in downtown Monterey, Tenn. is beginning a project to honor Monterey-area military veterans in a permanent exhibit. 
  “Veterans of the area have served to keep our country free,” Ken Hall, Monterey Cultural Administrator, said. “They came back to the area to lead productive lives, raise their families and become leaders. Many never left the battlefield. They’re still many active duty servicemen and servicewomen from our community on the frontlines of freedom, today.”
  The museum already features some about area veterans, but they plan to do much more. Plans are to collect photos of the service members from the Civil War through the current day. Veteran’s photos will be placed in a digital frame and also a flip binder in the museum. Any supporting documentation will be placed in a file for the veteran for visitors to view upon request. 
  Eligibility: Any HONORABLY Discharged Veteran or Active Military Service Member who has ever lived in the Monterey area (including Crawford, Wilder, Hanging Limb, Dry Hollow, Calfkiller, Clarkrange, Cumberland Cove, Sand Springs, Shady Grove, Mill Creek, etc.),  from any period of history.  
    What We Need: Two 8 x 10 (or 8.5 x 11) photos (military portraits if available); copies of any supporting documentation (DD214, newspaper clippings, etc.)   
   Cost: There is no cost. However, donations are always appreciated and can be mailed to:Monterey Depot Museum1 East Depot StreetMonterey, TN  38574    To pick up an application or for more information, contact Ken Hall at 931-839-2111; or download a form at www.montereydepot.com.

SPRING ON THE MOUNTAIN CELEBRATION IS MAY 3

What brought the railroad to the mountian? It was the natural resources such as timber and especially coal. The Town of Monterey (which means "King of the Mountinas") was founded by the Cumberland Mountain Coal Company in 1893. The community was known as Standing Stone before that.

 Spring on the Mountain will be on Saturday, May 3, in downtown Monterey. There will be several craft and food vendors in the downtown area mostly around the Monteerey Depot Museum. Just across the railroad tracks, this year, will be a car show at the Farmer's Market. Also, at the Farmers Market, the Monterey Garden Club will host their annual and very popular plant sale from early morning until they run out.

An excursion train will arrive from Nashville sometime near noon. If you want to ride from Nashville, contact the Tennessee Central Railway Museum online at http://www.tcry.org/ If its a short ride you want, the Monterey Depot Historical Society is selling tickets for $10 each to ride from the museum out to the sand plant and back. Entertainment is being planned for the event.

After a hard, cold winter, y'all come on up to the mountain and help us kick off the spring season.

For craft and food vendors, click on the appropriate link for an application for and more details.
