The Country Cuisine and Sweet Shop in the newly dedicated Family History Center (old State Farm Insurance office on Main Street) will be open Saturday offering one of Sunny Cal's favorite meals, cornbread and beans, with lots of onions and butter optional. It's just $1.50 for the deal, in addition to cheesecake, brownies, coffee and drinks in a sit-down cafe atmosphere, air-conditioned too. The proceeds go to the Historical Society.

From cheesecake to beans, have a sit-down

The building is beginning to develop a flavor of what is to come, pictures, paintings and artifacts representing life in Calhoun County. New donations include a Civil War rifle and Spav Stump's cane.

Listening to oral history

Artifacts to view and books to buy

The center already has a booth for listening to the oral history of the county, much of which has been put together by Harry and Trina Beall, including a video tape of "famous" Calhoun parades (available on VHS tape for $15).

The Society is also selling a large selection of historical books.
