Society to meet Sunday

The Bradley County Historical and Genealogical Society will hold its quarterly meeting Sunday at 2:30 p.m. in the Community Room at the Cleveland Public Library.

Paul Hickman, who will be the guest speaker, will show a pictorial history of the changes that occurred in Cleveland and Bradley County from the 1960s to the 1980s.

The meeting is open and free to the public. A native of Cleveland, Hickman is a financial advisor with Edward Jones. He will explore this period of rapid growth in Cleveland through his collection of pictures.  The program will last about 30 minutes and after his presentation several minutes will be available for questions from the audience. 

Bryan Reed, president of the Bradley County Historical and Genealogical Society, added, “We are excited about looking back at this period of time in Cleveland and Bradley County. New roads such as Keith Street and Interstate 75 were being built during this time period. New and different ways of shopping and new types of employment were coming to our community. We started seeing the first big name restaurants coming to this area during these decades.”
 

People interested in knowing more about the Bradley County Historical and Genealogical Society can follow them on Facebook at Bradley County (Tennessee) Historical and Genealogical Society. Membership to the Society is open to the public.

There is a small annual fee.
