Historic Village Will Open for Baron Bash on Nov. 10
MOUNT VERNON— The Montgomery County Historic Village on the Brewton-Parker College Mount Vernon campus will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 10, in cooperation with the 1st Annual BPC Baron Bash.
The Historic Village Cooper-Conner house and Berry C. Thompson house are log homes constructed by early settlers to this area in the 1830s and ’40s. These families settled in the Uvalda and Vidalia area and helped build schools and churches. Their lives are representative of the energetic farmers of the antebellum period.
Visitors are encouraged to come by and see what is new at the Historic Village, then head down to the BPC Soccer Field to check out other Baron Bash activities. These activities will include Scottish games for adults and children, Math & Science Fair, children’s arcade, pictures with Santa Claus, local entertainment, Montgomery County Elementary School art show, face painting, hay rides, Historic Village tours, paddle boat rides, a fire truck and race car to explore, plus a craft and yard sale. Vendor concessions are also available. The event is a fundraiser coordinated by the BPC Women’s Fellowship. All proceeds will go towards a student media room for BPC students.
