Chapter Centennial Tea Picture

The Winston Home in Tuscumbia was the perfect setting for the chapter centennial tea on Saturday, November 17, 2007. The home was beautifully decorated and delicious refreshments were served to the many distinguished guests attending during the afternoon. We were delighted that Shelby Ward, Alabama State Regent, and other state officers and chairman were in attendance. Also honored on this occasion was our 50-year member, Mrs. Margaret McNeese.

This beautiful Queen Anne Victorian house in Tuscumbia, pictured here in 1903, was the site of the organizational meeting, November 19, 1907, of the Chief Colbert Chapter. It was the home of Congressman and Mrs. Archie Hill Carmichael, Sr. (the former Anne Suggs) was one of the twenty-six charter members of the Chief Colbert. The home has been carefully renovated and is still lived in by descendents.
