Museum complex features nostalgic displays

The Blountsville Historical Society will host a Christmas Open House this Sunday, Dec. 14, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the museum complex north of town.

Displayed at the Freeman House Museum will be the collection of Inez Adcock. Items to be displayed, which belonged to her sister, include dresses constructed from original patterns designed by her mother, some of her toys from the period, and old kitchenware.

Other displays will be open as well. The old Brooksville post office will show vintage stamps, postcards, and furnishings and labeled slots where patrons received mail.

The park’s newest cabin promises to be a treat. This cabin will be transported back in time to become a tavern (or gathering place) from the 1830s-’40s. Old pewter, crocks, and other furnishings will be showcased and period appropriate refreshments will be served – as long as they last.

Visitors young and old are invited this Sunday to enjoy nostalgic memories of Christmas past.
