Living in the Past

The second annual Burie Treasure event was a fun-filled day for all. Many thanks to our presenters, our guides and our guests. And thanks, too, for your generous donations toward restoration of Greenwood's old Norwood Cemetery. As the event wrapped up we were surprised - and delighted- to receive an unexpected visit from members of the Norwood family. More about that later!

Looking forward to our next Buried Treasure event. Aiming for May!

Rain, Rain Go Away

Saturday's wet weather didn't deter members of the South Sebastian County Historical Society from rehearsing for their upcoming "Buried Treasure" event at Liberty Cemetery. The family-friendly Tales of the Crypt type event will go on rain or shine, Sunday, Oct. 4 at 2 PM at the cemetery, located at the intersection of Greenwood's Highway 96 and Ware Road. Actors will present biographies at the gravesites of eight  personalities who helped make Greenwood what it is today. Admission is by donation. Proceeds benefit the Historical Society.

While we're hoping for a sunny day, rain won't stop the show. In the event of bad weather, we will gather under the large brick pavilion on the west side of the cemetery. Parking will be on cemetery drive behind the pavilion on the west side of Ware Road.

Hope you can join us while we honor the memories of these citizens of yesterday.
