VCHS Spring Fling

The Vardy Community Historical Society's "Spring Fling" is today, the day after the first annual MHS Conference in Rogersville (more on that later next week).

The Spring Fling, which lasts from 10 am till 2 pm, features Appalachian crafts such as basket and chair weaving, apple butter making, corn grinding, shuck dolls, hominy making, a tractor show, and plenty of music. The location is the Vardy Church Museum, in Vardy, which features displays from the Presbyterian mission which provide education opportunities for Melungeon children from 1899 to the early 1970s.
