SHERBURNE – For the last four years, the Sherburne Historic Society has been celebrating Heritage Day by taking a look at the area’s history and providing village residents with an opportunity to experience what the town was like during the Civil War Era. This year’s Heritage Day celebration will take place on Saturday.
The Heritage Day celebration will be all about history and the effects the Civil War had on the area. Several Civil War reenactment groups will be in town for the event. The activities will kick off at 5:30 p.m. on Friday when reenactors from the 61st Division will hold a special salute to Civil War soldiers at the Civil War Monument on the corner of South Main and East State Street.
The highlight of the Heritage Day activities will be the dedication of the new log cabin, located in Sherburne’s Historic Park on the Corner of Champ Drive and School Street. At 10 a.m. on Saturday, the Sherburne Historic Park Society will dedicate the log cabin, donated by Jim Webb, in memory of his late son, Josh, who began building the structure at another location.
