LIVING HISTORY

Six individuals who played roles in Oglethorpe County’s rich history will share intriguing stories and historic facts about their lives. Each character, brought to life by an actor in costume, will present a seven to ten minute monologue about their contributions to our county, state, and nation.  The presentations will be in two lovely historic buildings in Lexington—the newly restored Oglethorpe County Courthouse and Beth Salem.
