JOIN THE SCOTTSBORO-JACKSON HERITAGE CENTER IN VISITING THE PLANTATIONS OF FRANKLIN, TN MAY 11, 2017 Leaving the Home Depot Parking Lot at 7:00 AM and Returning around 6:30 PM Transportation provided by First Class Charter, LLC We will first be visiting the Rippavilla Plantation located just South of Franklin, TN. Rippavilla is a masterpiece of Southern architecture, a family museum, a Civil War battlefield, and a museum shop all rolled into one. Carnton Plantation is no stranger to many that went on our first trip. Many did not get to spend much time at Carnton and have requested a return trip with more time to visit the out buildings, slave quarters and the cemetery. The house is most beautiful. A must see! We have a wonderful lunch planned for the group. We may stop at Bell Buckle, TN on the way home if we can get away from Carnton by 3:30 PM. We would like to treat all of you to an ice cream and peruse Bell Buckle's shopping experience. COST - ALL INCLUSIVE - $109.00 Deadline for getting your check to the Heritage Center will be April 2nd. Make the check payable to the Scottsboro-Jackson Heritage Center, P.O. Box 53 Scottsboro, AL 35768. Call 256-259-2122 to get additional information. Hope that you can go with us.
