Event description

Description

Scottsville Museum announces the fifth annual "Twilight Tours through Scottsville History," happening on Saturday and Sunday, 21-22 October 2017. Come and take a lamplight stroll through historic Scottsville with your tour guide and encounter town residents from bygone eras. Hear their tales and recollections, see notable places and people brought to life from the pages of history. Meet Isaac A. Coles, local planter, gallant colonel, friend of presidents, and prototype of the Washington insider. Feel what Scottsville was like during the 1930’s as you witness a local family, inspired by local author, Earl Hamner, Jr., as they deal with the Great Depression. Wonder what it was like when the Scottsville High School was bustling with teenyboppers? Listen in as two students from the Class of ’56 share gossip and news from the school. These and several other figures from the past complete the cast and cover events spanning from the 1800’s until the 1980’s.

These hour-long outdoor, walking tours are not handicap-accessible and depart every 20 minutes from the Scottsville Museum on Saturday and Sunday, 21-22 October. Please dress appropriately for an outdoor, evening walking tour.

Ticket prices for these outdoor performances are $5.00 and proceeds go to the Scottsville Museum, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of Scottsville's history. Space is limited.

Please note, no refunds will be given. Each event occurs rain or shine.

If you have questions, please e-mail Twilight Tour co-chairman, Lisa Bittner, at smuseum@avenue.org or leave a voice message for Lisa Bittner at 434-286-2247.
