Mabry-Hazen House Hosts Park Day Apr. 6
Mabry-Hazen House
March 25, 2013 - Since 1996, the Civil War Trust has sponsored Park Day, an annual hands-on preservation event to help Civil War battlefields and historic sites take on maintenance projects large and small.

Mabry-Hazen houseThis year Park Day will be held on Saturday, April 6, 2013, from 9 am to 2 pm at the Mabry-Hazen House. Activities will include leaf and brush removal, mulching, dead tree removal, and general spring-cleaning. Some tools will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring rakes, pitchforks, tarps, and similar yard tools.

The Mabry-Hazen House Museum, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is located on six acres atop Mabry's Hill. Housing three generations of the same family from 1858-1987, the Mabry-Hazen House served as headquarters for both Union and Confederate forces during the Civil War.

Park Day, now in its 17th year, is an annual hands-on preservation event created by the Trust to assist local groups with the maintenance of Civil War sites. In exchange for their hard work, volunteers receive t-shirts and will also be provided a free lunch.

The nationwide effort is underwritten with a grant from Historyâ„¢, formerly The History Channel, and is recognized by the U.S. Department of the Interior as a "Take Pride in America" event.

Additional information about the event can be obtained by visiting www.mabryhazen.com or by calling 865-522-8661.
