The Prudhomme Fort Chapter of Colonial Dames Seventeenth Century met at Signal Mountain Club and hosted Dr. Daryl Black, executive director of the new Chattanooga History Center Museum.

A check was presented to Dr. Black in support of the new museum, scheduled to open in the spring of 2014.  The Chattanooga History Center will reflect major historical events that happened in Chattanooga:  The Trail of Tears; the American Revolutionary War; the Civil War…. and the events that produced a ‘Cinderella Story’ for Chattanooga being a model city for others to change their communities and plan for the future.

The Prudhomme Fort Chapter of Colonial Dames Seventeenth Century also presented a lineage reference book to the Research Department of the downtown Chattanooga Public Library – a dedication, In Memoriam of Willowdean Patterson Lester.  

The book is one of many references that provides information that may be used for lineage research in finding one’s ancestors.  The book is entitled Ancestral Roots of Certain American Colonists Who Came to America before 1700. 

The Prudhomme Fort Chapter is one of 13 Colonial Dames Seventeenth Century chapters in Tennessee; historic preservation is a major goal including marking historic sites, honoring Native American life in Tennessee during the Colonial era; and promoting scholarships. 

For information on chapter membership, call Pauline Moore at 824-7774.


Dr. Daryl Black, executive director of the Chattanooga History Center, receives a Certificate of Appreciation and a check toward  the new History Center from Pauline Moore, president of Prudhomme Fort Chapter, Colonial Dames Seventeenth Century.

Roy Exum: Oscar Brock’s True Passion

I don’t pay much attention to the Hamilton County School Board. Once the moon and the stars aligned behind Superintendent Rick Smith, you hear very little, if anything, from the nine-member council that oversees an annual budget of almost $400 million and employs 4,480 people. So chew this for a minute: approximately 2,000 of those people are not teachers. Yes, there are 78 principals ... (click for more)
