As summer bids farewell, it's time to clean up its "mess." A relatively cool and wet summer were a boon to the plants of Mabry's Hill, but they need a healthy trim before the arctic airs of late fall and winter set.
Mabry-Hazen will hold a fall grounds cleaning day on Saturday, September 15, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Only have 2 hours?
No worries, all are welcome to come and go as they please.
Activities will include leaf and brush removal, mulching, dead tree removal, garden bed weed removal, and general grounds cleaning. Some tools will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring rakes, shears, shovels, tarps, pruners, trowels, and similar yard and garden tools.
The Mabry-Hazen House Museum, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is located on 7 acres atop Mabry's Hill. Housing three generations of the same family from 1858-1987, the Mabry-Hazen House was occupied by both Union and Confederate forces during the Civil War.
