Antique postcards donated to Cookeville museum -

Antique postcards donated to Cookeville museum -

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A collection of antique postcards has been donated to the Cookeville History Museum by historian Ridley Wills II of Nashville.

Judy Duke, administrator of museums for the city, told the Cookeville Herald-Citizen that the small box full of postcards provides a thumbnail history of Cookeville.

Some of them will be displayed, most likely in the next year, after they are catalogued and archived. They show churches, homes, hotels, main streets and people.

The paper said Wills had collected postcards for more than three decades.

Vintage automobiles to stop in Watertown for Great Race -

Powered by engines dating to the days of Henry Ford, more than 100 antique automobiles will loop around the Great Lakes this month in the annual Great Race competition, stopping along the way at the Alex T. Duffy Fairgrounds in Watertown on June 27.

A car show will run from 2 to 7:30 p.m. and admission is free. Vehicles are slated to arrive at 5 p.m. and will be on display during the evening.

Watertown will be the sixth of nine stops that teams of drivers will make for during the nine-day annual competition, which will start June 23 in Traverse City, Mich., and cross through Canada and four states.

After departing from Ontario on the morning of June 27, drivers will stop for lunch at the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton. Later at the city fairgrounds, cars will cross a finish line a minute apart. Cars in the race hearken back to 1910 to 1969.

Rather than racing with speed, teams will compete by trying to cross secret checkpoints at precise times. Teams will be penalized for each second they arrive too early or late.

The race is expected to draw a crowd of at least 3,000 visitors to the fairgrounds, said Kylie S. Peck, director of membership development for the Greater Watertown North Country Chamber of Commerce. About 15 local food vendors will be on site to sell hamburgers, hot dogs and carnival food, while local band Oceans Below will play live music featuring patriotic songs.

Local car owners interested in entering antique or exotic vehicles at the show should contact the chamber by June 25. In addition, vendors from the farmers market on Washington Street held earlier in the day are welcome to set up booths at the car show.

A concert featuring country music artist John Michael Montgomery at the Watertown Arena will punctuate the evening’s festivities. Doors will open at 6 for the 7 p.m. concert, and general admission tickets are now available at the chamber, 1241 Coffeen St., for $20. Reserve seats are also available for purchase for $45 at AAMCO Transmissions, 595 Coffeen St. The concert is hosted by Amp Entertainment of Watertown.

The antique cars will depart from the Hampton Inn in Watertown the next morning to head for Buffalo. The drivers will make final stops in Warren, Ohio, and Findlay, Ohio, before concluding the race in Dearborn, Mich., on July 1.

Ms. Peck said the antique car show will be the first of its kind offered in Watertown. After all, rarefied cars don’t circle the Great Lakes very often.

Another bonus from the race will be the hundreds of people introduced to Watertown for the first time, which gives the community a chance to roll out its welcome mat, Ms. Peck said. Race organizers asked the chamber to participate as a host city; no fee was required.

“They’ll get to see how beautiful the region is, and hopefully they’ll come back to visit,” she said.

“The goal of the chamber is to bring new events to the community like this.”

The Great Race was inspired by the 1965 movie of the same title, a comedy depicting an actual race in 1908 from New York to Paris.

To register for the car show or purchase tickets for the concert, visit the chamber or call 788-4400.
