(Cleveland)- The White County Historical Society has a great day planned for this weekend with an Open House and History Day at the Courthouse Museum in downtown Cleveland on Saturday, September 24 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. “We are so excited about our lineup of local talent that will be playing throughout the day,” explained Janet Cox, Board member, and event chairperson.
Performers include the Esther Partin Gospel Singers, Cameron Robinson on the keyboard, The Blocker Boys Gospel Duo, the talented Burt Koch on the fiddle, and Mattie King playing pieces on her trumpet.
Out on the lawn, Society board member John Erbele will be serving up fresh apple cider through the demonstration of a cider press. Children will also have an opportunity to operate the press.
Inside local authors, Roy Hardy, Emory Jones, and Garrison Baker will be signing their books, available in the gift shop.
According to Cox, several individual family histories will also be on display in the upstairs courtroom. “This will give everyone an idea how to start and prepare their family tree in a visual layout,” she added. To make the day even better, there will be hourly door prizes.
For more information, call 706-865-3225. The museum is located at 1 Courthouse Square in Cleveland.
