Sabine Hill Restoration at History Happy Hour on November 15th

The restoration of Sabine Hill, a historic property in Elizabethton, will be the topic of the final History Happy Hour for the 2018 season.

Sycamore Shoals State Park manager Jennifer Bauer will be the speaker at History Happy Hour on Thursday, November 15th. Originally built by Mary Patton Taylor, Sabine Hill features a prominent federal style house that has been restored to its 1818 appearance by the Tennessee Historical Commission. The operation of Sabine Hill is managed by Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park in Elizabethton.

History Happy Hour is a collaborative program in its second year at the Chester Inn Museum. The programs are on the 3rd Thursday each month at 6:30 pm, and they are free and open to the public. This month’s presentation will be held at the International Storytelling Center beside the Chester Inn Museum. This is the final Happy Hour for 2018 but keep an eye out for the 2019 schedule!
