Mayor Ralph McGill Plaza dedication on May 7

The public is invited to enjoy music and refreshments at the dedication of Mayor Ralph McGill Plaza on Friday, May 7. The music begins at 5:30 p.m. and the ceremony begins at 6 p.m. Only ADA parking will be available onsite; all other attendees are asked to park at the Farragut Community Center (239 Jamestowne Blvd.).

The plaza is named in memory of Ralph McGill, who was one of the Town’s founding fathers and was instrumental in the vote for incorporation in late 1979. He served as Mayor from April 2009 through June 2018 and was heavily involved in the Town’s acquisition of the Campbell Station Inn from the Russell family.

The new lighted plaza, which features a restroom, park-like open areas, new landscaping, benches, interpretive signage and parking, is the third phase of improvements to the historic Campbell Station Inn property. Phase 1 was a master site plan and asbestos abatement, and Phase 2 was restoration and stabilization of the inn’s exterior. Phase 4 will begin when a determination is made regarding the inn’s future. The inn is not currently open to the public.
