COLBERT FAMILY REUNION

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2007
5:00 O’CLOCK
SHEFFIELD’S WEST CARTER PARK
TUSCUMBIA LANDING
COLBERT COUNTY
SHEFFIELD, ALABAMA

On April 15, 2007 Tuscumbia Landing was designated as a Certified Historic site by the National Park Service. This is the first site certification in the state of Alabama and the most significant. The landing was used during removal and is an example of multiple
transportation uses. The train bed, the wagon road and the landing itself is still visible and still maintains its integrity.

Sheffield’s West Carter Park is on a bluff overlooking Tuscumbia Landing. The park has been closed for many years but renovations have been made to the pavilions and many other renovations are being made. The development of the park has not disturbed the landing site.

Sheffield will open the park on September 7, 2007 for the Colbert Family Reunion. This event will take place at 5:00 o’clock in the afternoon. Tuscumbia Landing will also be open at this time.

Reed Kirkland will give an update on the progress of the Tharp Cemetery where Nancy Colbert is buried. The Southeastern Anthropology Institute will be present along with members of the Natchez Trace Genealogy Society. Local historians and city representatives are also invited. The Walk of Life will be Saturday morning after the dedication by the National Park Service.

Covered Dish (sandwiches, chips and related foods are suggested)

For information call 256-381-0700

In case of bad weather or if the weather is too hot the reunion will be held at the Church of Christ Annex at the corner of 4th and Main in downtown Tuscumbia
