Border States On-Line
The meeting will feature six sessions examining,
in various ways, the nature of Upper South culture through its
people, customs, institutions, landscapes, and literature. Beverly
Brannan, Curator of Photography with the Library of Congress,
will present the after dinner program.
Historic Red Boiling Springs, located near the Kentucky
state boundary in eastern Macon County, Tennessee, was a popular
mineral spring resort town. In the mid-nineteenth century settlers
discovered the minerals waters and spread news of its healing
powers. By the turn of the century several hotels and dozens of
boarding houses catered to thousands of summer visitors.
The Kentucky-Tennessee ASA meeting will be held in
Armour's Hotel, one of three historic hotels continuing the tradition
of resort hospitality. The hotel offers the unique experience
of rest and relaxation, mineral baths, wonderful Southern food,
and a porch lined with rocking chairs.
