The Lexington County Museum will host its free annual Spring Open House this Sunday, May 7 from 2 – 5 pm.
The public is invited to tour the circa 1832 John Fox House, the 1771 Laurence Corley Log House, the ca. 1815 Oak Grove Schoolhouse, and all the rest of the historic structures at the museum.
Children will be able to participate in a scavenger hunt and other hands-on activities. This event will also feature a blacksmithing demonstration, indigo dyeing, and a 19th century cooking demonstration.
The event is free to the public. Light refreshments will be served. The Open House is a great time for visitors to learn more about the museum and the county’s history and is fun for the whole family. It also gives visitors the opportunity to explore buildings not normally featured on the typical hour long tour. Call the museum at 803-359-8369 for more information.
