Historical Society members are busy preparing for their roles as some of Greenwood's most beloved citizens in the first annual "Buried Treasure" event. Doug Kinslow, pictured, will portray Gov. John Sebastian Little. Other citizens who will be memorialized include: Amy Jane Dawson Stewart, Jewell Bell, Charlie McNabb, Coach Miro Spicer, Mary Elizabeth Tatum Little, and Reba Dawson. SSCHS members participating include: Emily and Jim Mitchuson, Sue Edwards, Ken Edwards, Donna and Joel Goldstein, Louise and Vernon Stewart, Sue Lewis, Charles Efurd, Glenda Wallace, and Tom Martin.
SSCHS anticipates that "Buried Treasure" will become an annual event, allowing the lives and contributions of many of the city's citizens to be featured over the years. Plans call for additional cemeteries to be added.
"Buried Treasure" is free. Donation are welcome and any received will benefit the Historical Society. Please join us for an afternoon of fun and remembrance, rain or shine!
