Burke Historical Society Presents: The History of Old Burke Village
Burke Historical Society Lecture Series. Join us online or in-person for this hybrid event.
In the early 1900s, Burke was a destination, a place to go for horse races, baseball, boxing, and jazz performances. Although the racetrack, bars, and hotel are long-gone, homes built before 1930 are still occupied today in the area roughly outlined by Lee Street, Old Burke Lake Road, Jackson Street, and High Street. Our speaker will tell of the 13 houses that are part of the Marshall and Brown subdivision, known as Old Burke Village.
Kathleen Jablonski received her Ph.D. from the University of Tennessee in Anthropology. Kathleen lived in Burke for over 28 years and used her research skills to investigate the Marshall-Brown Subdivision, which was established in 1907.
This program is appropriate for ages 13 & Up
