From the clanging of the forging hammers to the southern drawl of the Old West gunslingers, it was a trip back in time.
The opening day of the Sebastian County Historical Society is a time-honored tradition for families. From the airing of the quilts, the tour of the old jail, historical reenactments and music, it is a day to celebrate our rich heritage.
Crafters, artists and vendors were set up on the grounds of the Old Jail Museum, 307 E. Town Square.
Nickeltown Road and Squirrel Brains and Gravy provided live entertainment.
Skilled artisans such as Rich Mountain Blacksmiths, and rug-maker Valerie DiMaggio provided demonstrations for those in attendance. Reenactments were also provided by the Indian Territory Pistoliers and Barbara Jacobson who portrayed Dora Blaylock Cumbie at the historic Vineyard Cabin.
Families wandered about the grounds, enjoying the historic reminiscence of simpler days.
