TO BE HONORED IN NEW EXHIBIT
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

SPRING ON THE MOUNTAIN
CELEBRATION IS MAY 4
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.With coal in mind, the annual Spring
on the Mountain Dogwood Festival will honor King Coal and the miners who spent their lives underground digging it out.
The special event will be on Saturday, May 4 in downtown Monterey. There will be several craft
and food vendors in the downtown area on Commercial Ave. and around the Monteerey Depot Museum. Just across the railroad tracks,
this year, will be a yard sale venue near the Depot Museum. Also, at the Farmers Market, the Monterey Garden Club will host
thier annual and very popular plant sale from early morning until they run out. A car show will also be held in downtown Monterey,
on Commercial Avenue.
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 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.
