The Good Old Days Museum opened April 1st and Saturday April 2nd, 2022. We have made many changes to most of our displays. If you decide to visit this Friday or Saturday you probably will find us still hard at work to make our information as up-to-date as possible. If you are new to the area or have grown up in the area and you want to know more about the local history then this is the place for that information. Hours will be 9am to 4pm each day. We ask for a $5 donation if you are 18 years and older. If you are eight to seventeen we ask for a $3 donation. Any child younger than eight will be allowed in for free. If you are not familiar with Soddy-Daisy we are located at 11298 Wall Street in the old section of Soddy. We are in the 101 year old Soddy Bank. By the way, if you have any old Soddy, Daisy, Mowbray or Flattop Mountain photos or historical items bring it by the museum, we would love to see them. If you are looking for a place to leave them instead of throwing the items in the trash we would love to have them to save. Hope to see you soon!
History Fair January 21st, 2023
We will host our annual History Fair again in January at the Soddy-Daisy High School. The event will include 72 tables of local history to include Civil War artifacts, American Indian relics, coal mining and industrial pottery. There will people with their local genealogies. There will much local history that really does not fit into any category. We will again have Sam Hall with his website chattanoogahistory.com and also the Photo Doc, Tracy Knauss. He can work magic with torn, discolored faded photos. The day will begin at 9am and will end at 4pm. The cost is $5 for anyone over 18 years old, students from 8 to 17 will get in for $3 and children under 8 will get in free.
April 1st the Historical Association will host a cruise in and swap meet in the memory of local Soddy-Daisy car man, Andre Newman, who passed earlier this year from covid-19. Exact time and location has yet to be determined.
