Hanbye Abbey

The Hanbye Abbey was a medieval monastery built in the 12th and 13th centuries which housed Benedictine Monks. It was owned by the nation after the Revolution and was sold in 1790. Much of the buildings were dismantled and for a time the outer buildings were used as farm buildings. There has been some restoration but the church is still a ruin.

When Built: 1882

Builders: E.E. Hunter

Description: There is a festival called the Elizabethton Covered Bridge Day celebrated every year for a week in June. The builder E.E Hunter was a local doter who was called upon when a qualified contractor couldn’t be found by the County. He called the bridge his “$5 dollar bridge” as he made that much profit from the job.

This is part of a series on Tennessee’s Covered Bridges. You can find an index here.

Balls Falls, Ontario

Balls Falls, Ontario

One of the top waterfall destinations in southern Ontario, the Balls Falls Conservation area actually contains two waterfalls, Balls Falls pictured here, and upper Balls Falls. The area is very picturesque and a great place to spend the morning. You should also visit the nearby upper Balls Falls.

It can be reached by going north on Highway 24 (Victoria St.) off of Highway 401 Niagara. As you are going up the escarpment, turn left on Sixth Ave, and drive a short way to the parking area. It is well signed.
