April weekend

Are you looking for something to do this weekend? If you live in or around Morgan County, Tennessee, here are some offerings:

The Rugby Quilters and Historic Rugby, Inc., kick off their first Quilts Old and New exhibit at noon on Friday. It runs through 4 pm on Saturday. Quilts will be displayed in historic homes and buildings throughout the village, with "bed turnings" offered in the Rebecca Brown Theater. For more information, visit the Historic Rugby web site by clicking here .

Frozen Head State Park offers spring wildflower walks this weekend and next. Frozen Head is a jewel nestled at the head of the Flat Fork valley. For many years we would walk the trails after work when wildflowers were in bloom, packing a picnic dinner to enjoy trailside. Its many trails are noted for the abundance and variety of spring wildflowers. For more information click here.

The Morgan County Heritage Quilt Trail officially opens at 9:30 am Saturday with a ribbon cutting at the courthouse in Wartburg. An inaugural tour begins at 10, visiting the 18 barn quilts that form the trail's initial offering. Participants will receive a souvenir brochure that will be available only on opening day. Registrants will also enjoy a tea at Grey Gables Bed & Breakfast Inn and admission to the Rugby Quilt Exhibit. To preregister, phone the Chamber of Commerce at (423) 346-5740.
