Upcoming January 15th 2022 History Fair - Soddy-Daisy High School ~ 80 tables of local history. December 5th, 2021 Soddy-Daisy Christmas Parade
Our next big event on the calendar is Pioneer Day November 6th, 2021 Pioneer Day is a special event to the SDMHA. We want to include as many people who keep an old timey traditional way of doing something alive. We want everyone to see how baskets were made, diner was cooked in a fireplace over an open fire, maybe how apple cider was pressed, quilts were made or maybe how iron was forged in a blacksmith shop. The event last year, even while battling the covid-19 virus, had over 400 visitors who came and spent their day with us. We have expanded this year to include the making of soap, children's games and a display of early stoneware. Did I mention we will have a display of the famous Soddy long rifles? The event will begin at 9am and will end at 4pm. By the way, if you do an old timey traditional craft we would encourage you to call us at 423. 718-0528. We would love for you to join us on that special day.
May 15th, 2021 The Soddy Bank Building, home of the Good Old Days Museum will celebrate its 100th year old birthday on May 15th. It was built in 1921. On that day at the Bank building we will be hosting a Cruise-In around the Bank building. Cars will be on Depot Street from Back Valley Road around onto Wall Street to Main Street. These streets and Ducktown at Wall Street will be blocked off for the event. Did you ever hang out at the Chow-Now in Daisy? If not it was a locally famous restaurant with an awesome hamburger many still talk about. Well on that day we are going to make the Plenty-Burger and it along with other food will be for sale. The Good Old Days Museum is housed in the Soddy Bank Building and on May 15th it will be open to the public for free. The museum opens at 9am and the Cruise-In begins at 10am and will last until 3pm. Parking for the event will be in the Soddy Church of God parking lot at the corner of Back Valley Road and Depot Street. Transportation can be available if needed. The event will be free but we do ask for donations for the Soddy, Daisy & Montlake Historical Association as we look for another site to house our museum. The bank building, our present home, is for sale. We hope to see you there!
