With the elevator installed, the kitchen upstairs completed and some of the work downstairs well underway, the Laurens County Museum Board of Directors has scheduled a “First Look” at the Laurens County Museum’s Witherspoon Building in the Historic Downtown Square in Laurens from noon until 5 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 15.
The public is invited to attend free of charge, and visitors can tour the Witherspoon Building and enjoy refreshments on Sunday afternoon.
This partial opening is in celebration of the completion of the second floor Magnolia Room, Burns Theatre, lobby and front display areas, said board member Debbie Vaughn.
“All three floors can now be accessed by elevator by those with disabilities,” Vaughn said, admitting that her finally being able to see the Magnolia Room upstairs was a highlight this fall season.
“There are two special window displays which will also be revealed,” Vaughn said, “and they include artifacts which have never been displayed by the museum at either location.”
It is a drop-in style opening, which will include live piano music and refreshments.
“We are following CDC health and safety precautions and ask that visitors wear masks and social distance,” Vaughn said.
