.What do I need to bring?
Bring a side dish - maybe a favorite family recipe! Hot dogs, hamburgers, and soft drinks are provided by your hosts. We do need a head count, so please RSVP!What's notable about Randolph Bluff?
In its heyday, Randolph rivaled Memphis as a river port. Until 1840 it shipped more cotton annually than Memphis did! It declined commercially due to failed railroad development, an unfavorable mail route, and the town burned twice during the Civil War. Even so, today the site itself is still so beautiful that it was recently purchased by TN Parks and Greenways Foundation, and is protected as greenspace by a conservation easement for the public similar to the Memphis Public Promenade.
