The Bradley County Historical and Genealogy Society will hold its quarterly meeting Sunday, July 10th at 2;30 p.m. at the Cleveland Public Library’s Community Room. The program, open to the public, will be a 58-minute documentary “It's Home: Memories of the Ducktown Basin” produced by OLD TOWN PRODUCTIONS. This will be the first showing of the documentary in Bradley County.
The documentary focuses on the people living in the small mining towns of Copperhill and Ducktown. It demonstrates that living with no grass or trees created some differences but the human spirit and activities were the same has any other city in America. They had politics, baseball games, dances, intrigue, shopping, and jobs.
Debbie Moore of OLD TOWN PRODUCTIONS noted, “The familiar red barren hills of the basin will be seen in numerous photographs and home movie clips in the documentary.” Eighteen Ducktown Basin residents were interviewed in the making of the documentary. The stories they tell are of their lives growing up in the Basin."
Bryan Reed, President of the Bradley County Historical and Genealogy Society, added, “We are proud to present this historical documentary as part of our quarterly meeting and invite the public to attend this free showing. Information about membership to the Society will be available at the meeting,
