History Happy Hour is successfully wrapping up another season! This month’s program will be the final one for 2019 as there is no November program this year. Due to a change in speaker availability, this month’s program will be different than the one advertised on the season calendar. The original topic was supposed to be 18th century settlement techniques featuring a park ranger from David Crockett Birthplace. The program will now look at the regional impact of the New Deal in Washington County.

Join the Heritage Alliance’s own Joe Spiker as he examines the lasting impact of the New Deal in Jonesborough and Washington County and the impact that agencies such as the WPA and the NYA had in the area. The program will be held at the International Storytelling Center located next door to the Chester Inn State Historic Site and Museum. The program starts at 6:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public!

This project is funded under an agreement with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, Tennessee Historical Commission.
