Middle Tennessee State University intern Elizabeth Foster and Calvin Wallace look at a photo of the historic Campaign School graduation, one of many shared by the public to assist Foster in her project. She is documenting facts and photos of Campaign and the Rocky River Coal and Lumber Company.
Much Warren and Van Buren County history comes from the Campaign/Rocky River area, surrounding the 1921 emergence of Rocky River Coal and Lumber Company. McMinnville resident and Middle Tennessee State University intern Elizabeth Foster has taken on the project of researching and documenting information and artifacts from this era. They held a Campaign History Day recently at Friendship Baptist Church, inviting the community to share memories to reconnect with its rich past.
