Join the Chattanooga Area Historical Association as we explore the unique history of Copper Hill and the Ducktown Basin with Ken Rush, Curator of the Ducktown Basin Museum. The museum is located on the former Burra Burra copper mine which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Once copper was discovered in the area in the mid-1800s, the subsequent mining activity altered the Ducktown Basin forever.
The State of Tennessee purchased the site in 1983, making it the first state-owned historic industrial site.
As curator of the Ducktown Basin Museum, Ken Rush will share his insights at this talk.
The program will be on Monday, January 12 at 6pm at the downtown Chattanooga Public Library located at 1001 Broad Street.
