The Bradley County Historical and Genealogy Society will hold its quarterly meeting on Sunday, April 10th at 2:30 p.m. The meeting and program will be at the Cleveland Bradley County Public Library History Branch, 833 North Ocoee Street in Cleveland. The guest speaker will be lifelong resident and former Bradley County Commissioner Jeff Morelock. The program is free and open to the public.
Bryan Reed, President of the Society, said, “ We are honored to have Jeff Morelock come and share his research of downtown Cleveland in the 1960’s.” Morelock has created a map of downtown Cleveland which shows the businesses and where they were located. “If you like local history and remember downtown stores like Abel Hardware, Apler’s Shoe Store, Woolworth’s, Stamper’s, and Graber’s, then you will find this program both educational and enjoyable,” added Reed.
The Bradley County Historical and Genealogy Society meet four times a year and works to promote the preservation of the history of the people, places and events of our area. Membership is open to the public. Follow the Society on Facebook at Bradley County Historical and Genealogy Society.
