Memories of the Obed
On the second Saturday of each month, the Obed Wild and Scenic River hosts a local park neighbor to discuss their memories of the river before it became a National Park in 1976. Their memories are at times solemn, at times humorous, and at times exciting. Each park neighbor with unique memories will enthrall our visitors with stories of what life was like on the Cumberland Plateau in years gone by. Our March program will be held on March 8th, and will feature Mr. Fred Hamby, who was born almost 100 years ago in what is now the Catoosa Wildlife Management Area..
Those interested in attending this special event on Saturday, March 8th, are asked to be at the Obed Visitor Center by 1 p.m. (ET). The Obed Visitor Center is located at 208 North Maiden Street in downtown Wartburg. No reservations are needed for this free program. Keep checking this page each month for updates on our next guest speaker for the Memories of the Obed program!
