Society holds open house

JAY — The Jay Historical Society held its annual open house on Saturday, Aug. 11, with a “Country Fair” theme. The event was well attended as guests visited the Holmes-Crafts Homestead, archives, Carriage House Museum and Jay Fireman’s Museum. The lawn area was lively with country music by Larry Wright and Friends in the morning, followed in the afternoon by singer Louise Parker.

Display items worthy of mention for the 1940’s era emphasis were from Maurice Latham’s Service Station on Depot Flat, which were four ice cream table chairs, Maurice’s familiar cap and a large picture of his well-known service station, which many still remember as a favorite place to go for ice cream and candy.

An attractive addition of a horse and carriage silhouette has recently been donated and added to the Carriage House Museum outside wall.
