South Sebastian Historical Society Hosts Annual Old Jail Opening


The South Sebastian Historical Society is hosting the annual Old Jail opening and will have a benefit fundraiser, “The Airing of the Quilts.”

The event will take place on Friday, May 3 and will feature Blacksmith Jerry Holmes, Mountain Strings Dulcimers on the cabin porch, vintage quilts, antiques, handmade goods and games of the 1800s for the kids.

On Saturday, May 4, there will be Civil War and U.S. Marshal re-enactors, a Civil War Cannon Firing and live music on the porch.

While all the opening day fun is happening at the Old Jail Museum site, “The Airing of the Quilts,” will be happening across town. That event is sponsored by the ladies of Alpha Delta Chapter, ESA. The cost of admission is $5, and all proceeds will go to the Historical Society.
