localism: Things To Do While Visiting Cannon County - 11/30/07 02:20 PM
Cannon County is nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of Middle Tennessee. It is beautiful in the fall with hills full of trees turned all shades of red, yellow and orange all around you. When we eventually get a little snow, I love to see the hill tops dusted with it, shining in the sun. We are located almost exactly in the center of the state half way between Chattanooga and Nashville.
Our county seat is Woodbury where you will find quaint antique, craft and gift stores. Woodbury boasts a multi-functional arts center bolstering the local crafts industry and has a growing … (1 comments)

localism: Maybe a Small Town, but FULL of Talent! Cannon County Arts Center! - 11/30/07 02:08 PM
Okay, I have to admit... I have lived in my small town for quite sometime now and just went to my first play at our community arts center this past week. They were playing Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Now I was looking forward to my afternoon and wanted to treat my step-mom for her birthday but I had NO idea just how fabulous the play would be! Our theatre is full of some very talented people. I have been to many plays in the past in the larger repertory theatres and I have to say that most of the folks … (1 comments)

localism: Localism- tributes to local heroes of war - 10/18/07 07:39 AM

These are pictures of memorials in our town of local men who have lost their lives in battle. Included here is my uncle Harold. He was the youngest of 4 boys and was newly married when he was drafted to Vietnam. He didn't make it very long there before he was killed. He was among many on the front lines. It is such a heartache to loose someone to war.
Also, more recently we lost a young man in Iraq. Frank B Walkup IV was killed in action this past year. He was a 1st Lt. in United States Army Infantry where he was … (4 comments)

localism: Cannon County Courthouse - 10/18/07 07:28 AM

I love the charm of the old buildings in my town so I thought I would share them on the localism section of AR! The original courthouse burned in 1934 and this one was erected in 1935. The present Cannon County Courthouse features a striking Colonial Revival design by the Nashville architect George Waller and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Inside you will find the walls lined with local veterans that have served in our nation's military branches. The monument out front is a tribute to a few local heroes that have died in war and includes my uncle Harold Lawton … (3 comments)

localism: History Alive in Woodbury! - 09/28/07 05:44 PM
This is my homeplace where I grew up. My grandparents owned this home for many years and after they passed away, the property changed hands to my uncle. He has done a great job keeping the nostalgic air of the house. Capt. John C. New, of Cannon County who served in the Confederate Army once lived in this house. It is one of many historical homes in Woodbury.

localism: Georgeous Sky In Cannon County! - 09/28/07 05:27 PM
On my way out to dinner a few days ago I noticed how beautiful the sky was! I was so glad to have my camera handy to capture the moment!! It was a moment that made me smile! :) Some of the things I love about Middle TN are the incredible views, rolling hills.... especially in the fall. This was just one of those days you could look up and say wow! The pictures can't do it any justice at all! It was neat seeing the rays of sun shooting out from behind the clouds.
