Oliver Springs Alderman Omer Cox raises a new American flag at Carmichael Park’s new flagpole.
OLD GLORY: LONG MAY SHE WAVE

Monday was a big day for Carmichael Park in Oliver Springs, as it was a day that a new United States flag was presented and the park also received a Civil War marker in memory of Moses Naff.

“It’s a real nice occasion,” said Julia Daniel, president of the Mayme Carmichael School Organization. “It’s beautiful everything that has taken place.”

Carmichael Park sits on property that was once the home of the Oliver Springs Colored School. The Park is named after the school’s beloved teacher, Mayme Carmichael.
