Fayette Historical Society Hosts Fundraiser for Holliday-Dorsey-Fife House Museum

The Holliday-Dorsey-Fife House Museum in conjunction with the Fayette Co. Historical Society will present a special fund raising event for the Fayette Co. Museum on March 12. 2011.

Herb Bridges, an authority on Gone With the Wind collectibles, will be speaking on Gone with the Wind, specifically on Margaret Mitchell and how she came to write the famous novel. Herb is the largest collector of GWTW memorabilia around.

He has written several books, and will do appraisals on any editions of GWTW by audience (limit one per person) after his talk.

The price for the event, located at the Fayetteville Main Street building (the DEPOT) and follow up at the Museum, will be $5.00. The time will be from 11:AM to 12:15.

Also at the museum we will be having the "Celtic Ties" musical group to entertain from 1:00 to 3:00 p. m. Scott Gilbert will be there (dressed as an Irish Confederate) to share with anyone some Irish /Confederate history. The $5.00 admission is good for both events.

This will be an interesting and worth while event in support of our Museum.
