Century Historical Group Holds Boxcar Barbecue

November 30, 2008


Southern barbecue, bluegrass and gospel music, time with friends and a little history were allĀ  part of the annual Boxcar Barbecue in Century.

The annual Alger-Sullivan Historical Society fund raiser was held Saturday in the town’s historic district.

And what would a Boxcar Barbecue be without…barbecue? Hot barbecue from Big Stevie’s Barbecue from Brewton, hot dogs and soft drinks were available.

Visitors were also able check the progress on the restoration of Old 100, the historic steam locomotive at the ASHS’s railroad museum.

The event is the Alger-Sullivan Historical Society’s last fund raiser of the year.
