  • After a hiatus of more than 15 years, Cropper Day is Saturday in downtown Cropper in northeast Shelby County.

    The Cropper Ruritan Club, with help from other individuals and groups, has revived the event to promote interest in the small, rural community.

    The day kicks off with yard-sale booths opening 9 a.m. A Pie in the Face fundraiser contest will be all day. Jars for donations are available for community members Gene Witt, Don Taylor and the Rev. Jim Cavender.

  • Sometimes it only takes a few steps forward to walk back in time.

    If you were at Red Orchard Park this past weekend, you walked past this sign, “Welcome to the 18th century.” You saw the tents, the storied artifacts and outfits. You saw Indians and horses. You saw the Long Run Massacre reenactment.

    “I was really delighted. Everything made off without a hitch,” said Kathy Cummings, president of The Painted Stone Settlers, which put on the 3-day reenactment.

  • No settled station was more exposed to Indian attack in the late summer of 1781 than Squire Boone’s Painted Stone Station. It had lost several of its defenders in recent harassing attacks, and venturing beyond its wall was a hazardous undertaking.
