“Cades Cove: History in Photos” to be at the Blount County Public Library

“Cades Cove: History in Photos” to be at the Blount County Public Library | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it

MARYVILLE, TN (January 13, 2012) Many local Blount County families have family members or ancestors who once lived in Cades Cove. To help record some of the history and preserve some of the family photographs, two local residents with family ties to the Cove recently published an Arcadia book of images.
Missy Tipton Green and Paulette Ledbetter, authors of Cades Cove: Arcadia Images of America, will give a slide presentation at the Blount County Public Library on Monday, January 23, at 7 p.m.
Both Green and Ledbetter are founding members of the Cades Cove Preservation Association, and both continue active involvement at the Association’s museum, located in the historic Thompson-Brown House.
Green enjoys genealogy and says, “I feel that history needs to be preserved and saved to hand down to the younger generations. If the stories do not get documented and put in some form for them to be available for everyone to read, who will know about all of the history?”
Cades Cove is the third book by Missy Tipton Green. Her first two books were Precious Memories and From Mineral Springs to Bed Springs (co-authored with Paulette Ledbetter).
Paulette Ledbetter has lived in Blount County most of her life. She says, “My interests are my family, hiking in Cades Cove and reading. Through my love for reading, came my interest in history. I love old farm buildings, barns and houses.” Like Green, she wants to preserve some of the area history for her children and future generations, and she was co-author of From Mineral Springs to Bed Springs.
Free and open to the public, the program is at the Blount County Public Library, located at 508 N. Cusick Street, Maryville.

"... One step my office took in 2010 was to create the Nashville After Zone Alliance, a system of free, high-quality after-school programs for Metro Schools’ middle school students. NAZA’s programs — a partnership between the school district, the Nashville Public Library and nonprofits that serve young people — provide academic support and creative outlets for these students, ensuring that they stay off the streets and out of trouble before they get home each afternoon.

It’s collaborative programs like this that will help us keep reaching our children and teenagers, one young person at a time..."
