Supper with the Spirits

April 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Supper With The Spirits
An evening of fellowship with early Calhoun settlers

You are invited to spend an evening with the spirits of 15 early Calhoun area residents who served a significant role in McMinn County history. Calhoun was founded on the Hiwassee District reservation of Major John Walker, Jr. and McMinn County was established in his home on November 13, 1819.

In a dinner theater setting, a three-course meal will be served followed by a visit with these townsfolk who were laid to rest in the old Methodist graveyard during the 1800s. Lives of intrigue, betrayal, mystery, tragedy, war, and hard-work are well-represented by these residents of God’s acre on Church Street. A Cherokee businessman, a land speculator, a doctor, a Cherokee preacher, a teacher, two Civil War soldiers, and a Cherokee widow are among the “spirits” who have promised to materialize at Meditation Park.
