Historical society plans new exhibit for festival

Farming has played a vital role in the development of Weakley County, and the Historical and Genealogical Society is planning an exhibit to showcase the history of local farmers.
The exhibit will give a historical prospective of farming in Weakley County and be displayed inside the C.E. Weldon Public Library from Monday through Wednesday during the Soybean Festival.
It will feature pictures of farmers, equipment and livestock. It will also include a baking contest with products made from part of a soybean plant.
Pictures donated for the exhibit but not used this year will most likely be used in future years, according to the historical society. Donated pictures cannot be returned, but scanned images will be accepted. Pictures can be given to the librarian and should include a name, phone number and who or what is in the photo.
Pictures can also be submitted by email to mandmrea@frontiernet.net.
In addition to the historic photos, several published works from the historical society will also be on display. Genealogists will also be available to answer questions.
For more information, contact Elaine Knight at 731-588-1002 or 731-514-1677.
