Events held during Apple Butter Makin' Days

Free activities, including a quilt show, living history and museum tours, will be offered by the Lawrence County Historical Society during Apple Butter Makiní Days next weekend, Oct. 13 to 15.

All take place at Jones Memorial Chapel and the adjoining Adamson Cabin at 11110 Lawrence 1137, Mt. Vernon. Hours are 1 to 4 p.m Friday; 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday; and 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Antique and modern quilts will fill the chapel for the fifth annual Quilt Show. Handicapped access to the quilt show is available on the east side.

A working blacksmith will join the living history at the 1850s Adamson Cabin again this year. The museum will be open for free tours. It features exhibits from prehistoric days to modern times. Among them is the original statue of Lady Justice that stood for most of a century over the Lawrence County Courthouse.

Jones Memorial and the cabin are located just south of the intersection of Highway 174 and Farm Road 1137, northeast of downtown Mt. Vernon, adjoining the west side of the Mt. Vernon Golf Course.
