Bachman Community Center on Signal Mountain announces noted historian and author, James Douthat to their auditorium to kick off the Walden’s Ridge History Lecture Series.
"Reverend Douthat is a wealth of historical knowledge regarding early settlements of Walden’s
Ridge, which today includes the towns of Walden and Signal Mountain," officials said.
The first presentation in the series, taking place on July 29 at 10:30 am, will focus on the origins and evolution of the schools, from pioneer settlements to the construction of modern buildings.
Future sessions include topics such as Old Town and the trolley, construction of the W Road, settling
Summertown, activity during the Civil War and more.
All sessions of this quarterly lecture series will be free and open to the public. Donations are welcome and support the preservation of the historic school building that is now home to the Bachman Community Center.
