 Trentham/Trantham Gatherings in TN

26th Annual Trentham Reunion

Gatlinburg, TN

2nd Saturday in August:  August 11, 2007 at Holt Park

Gatlinburg, TN

9 AM til ...

Covered dish lunch at Noon

Bring genealogy stuff and photos of your family members.

The older the photos the better.

You may wish to bring a lawn chair (seating is at picnic tables.)

There are rest rooms and small playground for the kids.

It's nice to go exploring along the river that runs by the pavilion.


Traveling from Pigeon Forge into Gatlinburg... the very first thing you see on your RIGHT as you enter Gatlinburg is Holt Park. There is then a curve to the RIGHT. Stay in the right lane. Slow down as you get in sight of the FIRST red light, because it's easy to miss the little street. A few car lengths before you get to the red light, on the RIGHT there is a small green sign up high on a tall post that says "Holt Park". You turn RIGHT there on the RIGHT side of that little sign. (This road turns on the left side of what used to be the old Trentham Hardware building. Not sure what is there now.)  This is the first right turn you can make after you go past the by-pass and start into Gatlinburg. After you turn, the road immediately "disappears" below you. You go DOWN the hill and then SHARP RIGHT and follow road across a narrow bridge. The road dead ends at the pavilion where our reunion is held.
