News and notes of the JCHA

Honor our founder

Jackson County owes Ann Chambless a debt of gratitude that can never be paid for her tireless efforts documenting our county’s history. The JCHA would like to recognize her role in preserving Jackson County history by placing a bench on the newly renovated square in her favorite spot—near the band stand. If you would like to contribute to this effort, send a tax deductible contribution to JCHA Bench Fund, P. O. Box 1494, Scottsboro, AL 35768. Any funds collected that exceed the $1000 needed to place the honorarium bench will be applied to new historical markers. Here is the proposed wording (3 20-character lines):

Ann Barbee Chambless
Beloved Recorder of
Jackson County History
