'Easter Egg Roll' Is Sat. At Johnson Homestead

The Andrew Johnson National Historic Site and the Nathanael Greene Museum have partnered to host the annual "Easter Egg Roll" on Saturday, March 23, at the Andrew Johnson Homestead.

The event will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Homestead, President Johnson's home during the later years of his life. The house is located in the 200 block of South Main Street in Greeneville.

In case of inclement weather, the event will be held indoors at the Nathanael Greene Museum.

Have you ever wondered why people decorate eggs for Easter, where the "Easter Bunny" came from, or why eggs are "rolled" as a traditional Easter activity?

These are only a few of the questions that will be explored during the event.

Participants will decorate their own wooden Easter eggs as they discover the lore behind all things Easter, according to a news release.

After egg-decorating, participants will use their eggs in several egg-related games such as relays, an egg hunt, and the main event -- an Easter Egg Roll.

Prizes will be awarded by age group.

No one will go home from the "Presidential Easter Eggstravaganza" empty-handed, the release states.

The 17th U.S. President, Andrew Johnson, had an important part in the making of an Easter tradition at the White House, said National Historic Site Superintendent Lizzie Watts.

Saturday's event will provide families an opportunity to learn more about President Johnson and how his family enjoyed their leisure time, the release said.

For more information, please call 423-638-3551.
