Join us on September 15th, on the Chambers front lawn (412 HWY 76 White House,
Tennessee 37188) , from 8:00 AM-5:00 PM to experience Robertson County! We will have storytellers,
music from the porch, a progressive mural that you can paint, hand painted murals created by the White
House Initiative for the Arts to take photos in front of, museum tours, food trucks, free inflatable for kids
and so much more. This a free event that is fun for all ages.

From 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM, Mansker’s Station Historic Interpreter, Jennifer Kirk will demonstrate the
process of flax, cotton and wool, as well as demonstrating the box loom used to weave tapes in the 18 th
century. During that same time, we have three different storytellers lined up to tell stories about significant
events that happened in White House. The stories include how Civil War Union Soldiers burned a mill in
White House, wheat threshing during WWII when all the young men were at war overseas, and about a
lady that saved the farmers around this area during the Great War. Starting at 11:00 AM, London Eller will
perform period music from the porch. London has been singing at events since she was 8 and has
performed at rodeos in the US and Canada, sports events including Trevecca University and Nashville
Sounds games and even for the New Orleans Riverboat Natchez with the Dukes of Dixieland. London
plays guitar, mandolin, and piano. At 1:00 PM, the White House Dulcimer Players will perform on their
handmade stringed instruments. The White House Dulcimer Players consist of members from the local
area and have been playing for outside groups for several years. The instruments name means sweet
sound;. Invented in the Appalachian mountain region in the early 19th century, the dulcimer is speculated
to be a hybrid of many different European influences: the German zither, the Swedish Hummel, even the
Norwegian langeleik.

This event is a countywide tourism event designed to shine a spotlight on Robertson County. Visitors will
have the opportunity to visit all 11 municipalities that make up our beautiful and unique county. A digital
map will be the guide of Robertson County where you will experience the smoking barns of the fall, the
Spirit of the bell witch and our historic whiskey industry and the amazing soil that feeds our agriculture
roots! So bring your friends, family, and yourself to enjoy this wonderful day here at the White House Area Chamber of Commerce.
