Tennessee Governor Bill Lee visited Chester County on Monday October 25. The main reason Lee traveled to Chester County was to visit as a celebration of Tennessee’s 225th anniversary. He started his tour in Chester County at the Bramblett Group, then walked to the Sue Shelton White Park to see the Eddy Arnold Tennessee Music Pathways Marker and “Pipe Dreams Come True” sculpture made by the Chester County High School welding students. He crossed the street to the Henderson|Chester County Chamber of Commerce office and eventually made it to Besso’s where he and others who attended conversed and took photos. Governor Lee said the following about Henderson and Chester County – “When people travel here what they’ll find is that Chester County and Henderson is a jewel within the state. We have a lot of jewels in this state that make up the beauty of Tennessee… People are looking around this country to find places that remind them that America hasn’t lost their way. Chester County is an example of America at its finest and that’s why you see the activity right here in downtown Henderson.” Photographed are, from left, Gov.
