Historical Society to host picnic
The annual Jefferson County Historical Society picnic will be held at Gap View Farm, 371 Gap View Farm Lane (off of Old Route 9 about 1-1/2 miles north of Home Depot) beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug, 6. The farm is owned by Susannah Buckles, daughter of the last U.S. survivor of WWI Mr. Frank Buckles and his wife Audrey. Main courses will be catered by Magnolia Caterers and guests are requested to bring a side dish or dessert to complete the dinner offerings. Tours of the farmhouse will be conducted after dinner and will feature some of Mr. Buckle’s artifacts.
Guests are not required to be society members but will have an opportunity to pay the $20 dues and join the Society at the picnic if they wish, or they may join in advance by visiting our web site at jeffersonhistoricalwv.org/thestore.html. Members are also encouraged to visit the web site to purchase items from the new line of Society-themed apparel, hats and travel bags.
