Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park along with Friends of Sycamore Shoals, introduces their newest organization, The Sabine Hill Social Society
 
Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park announces a new way to enjoy & learn more about our history in the Elizabethton area. In connection with Sabine Hill our newest property, the Sabine Hill Social Society is a group of dedicated volunteers who focus on helping the park with educational events, social activities, and early 19th century period clothing assistance representing the Federalist period of time in America (1790-1820).  Not to mention enjoying social time with our park guests and other ‘social society’ members!
 
This fledgling group has big plans and is excited about sharing the stories and lifestyles of families that lived at Sabine Hill and throughout our region in the early 19th century, including dances, teas, and special lectures.
 
If you are interested in becoming a member of this organization, all you need to do is join Friends of Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park.  Online information can be found at www.friendsofsycamoreshoals.org or in the lobby.
