As grandparents, Sam and Marilda Maxey adored their grandchildren, Sallie Lee and Thomas Lightfoot, and played a large role in their lives. In honor of Sam and Marilda, the Sam Bell Maxey House State Historic Site is celebrating Grandparents' Day this year. Enjoy this special day at the Maxey House with activities that grandparents and grandchildren can do together.
Between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., take a tour of the Maxey House and learn about the Maxey family and their home. All tours begin on the hour. After your tour, be sure to enjoy the family-friendly activities on the grounds that grandchildren and their grandparents can do together. Some of the activities include working together to make a family tree, drawing a family portrait, and having the grandchildren interview their grandparents.
