Stonecipher Kelly House hosts first-ever homecoming

-A A +A

One of Morgan County’s oldest standing homes will be the site of an Historic Homecoming and Reunion this Saturday, Oct. 14 from 1 to 5 p.m.

The Stonecipher Kelly home, located on Beech Fork Road and visible from Highway 62, was privately owned until the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation for restoration and historic purposes.

The home — estimated to be 200 years old — is now under the direction of Frozen Head State Park.

Historical re-enactments and home tours will be part of the day’s events, as will a unique “digital archives” tent, where visitors can share photos and other memorabilia digitally.

Curators will be taking pictures of the artifacts, which will then be put on a flash drive and shared with contributors.

Winners of a student essay contest will also be announced Saturday.

Officials will also be seeking input on how best to restore the home, as there are several options from which to choose.
