Historical society gears up for events
Bulloch Historical Society

    The Bulloch County Historical Society anticipates several exciting events in the coming weeks, including dedications and performances.
    The group will join for the dedication of the “Averitt Foundation Eagle Nation on Parade,” a collection of hand-painted eagle statues depicting various aspects of the community, at 6 p.m. July 27 at Triangle Park, at the intersection of East Main Street and Savannah Avenue.
    The eagle statue there represents the downtown Farmer’s Market and has a sunflower theme.
    Members will also dedicate the restored Jaeckel Hotel sign that hangs on the historical Jaeckel Hotel, which now houses Statesboro City Hall.
    During the Brooklet Peanut Festival, Aug. 18 in the city of Brooklet, Bulloch County Historical Society members will dedicate the Brooklet Historical Marker.
    On Sept. 7, a puppet history debut of “The Ole Scarecrow Whaddyaknow Statesboro Medicine Show” will delight viewers. The unique puppet show will depict points in Bulloch County history and will be held at the Emma Kelly Theater in the Averitt Center for the Arts.
    The first Bulloch County coloring book will also be available on this date.
    On Oct. 12, during homecoming, the Statesboro High School historical marker will be dedicated.
    Participants also will enjoy “Tales from the Tomb,” a visit with several prominent “residents of Eastside Cemetery.”
    Actors will portray several Bulloch County residents as they share bits of history during the cemetery tour, which will be held on Oct. 29. A time will be announced at a later date.
