Finding Surprises- Part II

We found more than Easter eggs last Sunday at the Old Jail Museum Complex. A large ash tree found its way onto the roof of the barn. Tremendous rainfall and high winds seem to have been the cause. Today, workers are busy removing the tree and will begin making the necessary repairs. We request no visitors to that area, please, as this work proceeds.

We expect everything to be back to normal for our May 5 opening.

Finding Surprises

The preschoolers from First Baptist Church were happy to see the sun come out today so they could enjoy their Easter egg hunt in the grass around the Vineyard Log Cabin. Where's a camera when you need one?!

Colorful eggs weren't the only surprise. Our Key Magazines have finally been received from the printer (well, the first 150). Some are being hand delivered; others were mailed today. We're awaiting delivery of the remaining issues and hope to have them in your hands soon.

If you'd like to purchase this (or earlier) issues of the Key , please stop by the Old Jail Museum during regular hours of operation. Issues through 2005 are $5.00. Issues 2006-Present are $10. We're open May 5- October 31, 11 AM- 3 PM, Thursday- Saturday.

New Season, New Look

Expect to see lots of changes at the Museum this season. All the exhibits are new. Visitors are greeted by a new sign. The sign was created by Scott Winford of Greenwood. Scott is the artisan who creates the handsome chainsaw sculptures you see around town. His majestic eagle graced the town square. Many thanks to Scott for donating his time and talents to the creation of our new sign!
