Century Celebrates 108 Years Of History

March 30, 2008


The Alger-Sullivan Historical Society celebrated the 108th birthday of Century Saturday with a day of activities.

108century35.jpgThe day began at 9:00 with the raising of the colors. There was a “War Between the States skirmish” reenacted, as well as an authentic Civil War canon firing. Visitors had the opportunity to visit a civil war campsite, enjoy food and live music, and visit the museums. A Mayberry sheriff’s car and Barney Fife look-a-like (pictured left, click to enlarge) were also on hand.

The events took place in the area of the Alger-Sullivan Historical District at Fourth and and Jefferson streets in Century.
