History in Your Backyard
Saturday, August 20th
Saturday, September 10th
3-4 pm both days
Davies Manor is hosting a new speaker series History in Your Backyard to introduce smaller history groups and organizations in your community. This series will explore how different sites and groups "do history." History is a matter of what is preserved- come learn more about how that is done by different groups. On Saturday August 20th both Memphis Heritage and Rural Heritage will talk about their groups and preservation efforts. On Saturday September 10th both Morton Museum and Germantown Historical Preservation Association will discuss their groups. Snacks and Beverages provided. These events will take place in Hillwood. If there are other groups, interested in speaking as part of this series in the future, please message us. This is a free event!
Davies Manor welcomes all. The Manor house is set back from the grass parking area in front of the split rail fence but can be reached by a brick walkway. There is a step up to enter the house. Throughout the house, there are also small bumps in the doorways to several rooms. The second floor can be reached by two steep stairways. We are currently working on a video tour of the second floor for those uncomfortable or unable to reach the second floor.
Signs explaining major facts and artifacts sit in each room for those who do not want a guided tour.
