July 4th, 2020 - Ice Cream Social at the Good Old Days Museum. During the years the Durham Coal & Iron Company operated the coal mines in Soddy (1910-1929) they provided ice cream on the 4th of July every year. We started this yearly event last year and we will continue the tradition next week. If you go to the Veterans 4th of July event at the walking track at Soddy Lake you can get a ticket from the SDMHA tent for a free admission to the museum with one paid admission. When you come to the museum we will give you free ice cream to enjoy while you browse the history of Soddy, Daisy, Montlake, Mowbray and the Flattop Mountain community. We will be handing out brochures to the museum at the walking track as well as the kiosk at the Big Soddy Gulf Park. A person can get a ticket from the table at the kiosk at Big Soddy for a free admission to the Good Old Days Museum with one paid admission.
