Join us on the grounds at Glenmore Mansion for Park Day on Saturday, April 15 at 10AM. For more information visit: https://www.battlefields.org/…/mossy-creek-battlefield…
This annual event brings history enthusiasts together in an effort to help keep our nation’s heritage not only preserved but pristine. Since 1996, the American Battlefield Trust has sponsored Park Day, an annual hands-on preservation event to help Civil War — and now Revolutionary War & War of 1812 — battlefields and historic sites take on maintenance projects large and small. Activities are chosen by each participating site to meet their own particular needs and can range from raking leaves and hauling trash to painting signs and building trails.
Glenmore Mansion is the only public house museum in Jefferson County, Tennessee. Built by John Roper Branner in 1868, it is one of the southeast’s best examples of a second empire architecture still standing today.
Today, Glenmore engages the community through regular seasonal tours along with special events like the Spring Garden Market and the Christmas Candlelight Tours.
