The Oxford Historical Society will present its annual Peach Festival on Saturday, August 25, in St. Peter's Church, 421 Oxford Road. This year's theme is the history of the Town of Stevenson, the old Zoar Bridge and the Stevenson Dam.
The event will begin with an illustrated talk by John Babina at 2:30 p.m. on the construction of the dam. The talk will be in the church sanctuary.
This is the first time many of the photographs have been seen by the public.
Also featured will be pictures and memorabilia from the Hale-Coleman Orchards of Seymour and Oxford. Homemade peach shortcake with "all the trimmings" will be on sale from 4 to 7 p.m. Admission to the event is $1.
Proceeds will go toward continuing restoration and operation of the Twitchell Rowland Homestead Museum at 60 Towner Lane.
