The Indians are coming to the Spring Hill Public Library

[ 1 ] November 16, 2011 |


The Indians are coming to the Spring Hill Public Library; Indians that lived in Nashville 1,000 years ago, that is.

On Monday, November 21st, at 6 p.m., just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday, educator Tonya Staggs, from the Overton Family’s plantation, Traveller’s Rest, will tell the story of one of American history’s biggest mysteries…the Moundbuilders.

Almost 1,000 years ago these pre-historic Native Americans built a village on the land that is now occupied by Travellers Rest Plantation.

The Mississippians built complex cities and large earthen mounds. They had agriculture and far flung trading routes. Then one day their civilization disappeared and to this day no one knows exactly what happened. Learn about Tennessee’s lost people, see artifacts, learn the Corn Dance, and make a craft.

The Spring Hill Public Library is located at 144 Kedron Pkwy. in Spring Hill. The Library serves all those that live and work in either Maury or Williamson County. The library offers books, audio books, movies, WiFi, computer usage, research internet databases, and is a great place to connect with others in the community. For more information you can call 931-486-2932 or go to www.springhilllibrary.org.
