Eagle Scout, Taylor Bowling, has left a lasting mark on McCoy Farm. For his service project, Taylor made 3 beautiful benches and on December 5, installed them on the McCoy property.
The photo below is of Walden Mayor Bill Trohanis thanking and congratulating Taylor on a well done project while they tried out one of the new benches
Sadly, not too long ago Taylor was told that he and his family would be moving from Signal Mountain. Taylor decided that before he left, he would do his Eagle Scout Project here on the mountain to give back to the community in which he was raised.
We are grateful to you, Taylor. You and your family will be missed and we wish you the very best!
McCoy Farm will be open on Saturday, November 28 from 10 am to 5 pm for a Christmas at McCoy Preview! Come and BID EARLY on the Yessick’s-designed tree and Garden Club of Signal Mountain-decorated wreaths. Sip some hot apple cider ($1) on the porch, see the house beautifully decorated and enjoy the grounds. No admission fee and all are welcome!
Stroll the grounds and see the Bachman House decked out for the holidays– and get a little gift shopping done too! McCoy Farm invites you support the restoration of this unique place by attending our Christmas Market on November 29 from 2 until 5:30 pm. There will be food and retail vendors, a hot chocolate bar, crafts, music and children’s activities. And up for auction will be a beautiful Yessick’s-designed Christmas tree for your home! We’ve also heard that a special someone may make an appearance if the reindeer can find a good spot to land…
You may park and walk from St. Augustine Church or park and ride a free shuttle from Pruett’s Market. There is no entry fee and all are welcome. Donations in support of the continuing restoration of the house and grounds will be accepted.
We hope to see you there!
