The Fayette County Historical Society has announced the release of its 2020 Commemorative Calendar, with a “Then and Now” component.

The calendar includes monthly photographs from the museum’s collection of locations in Fayette County, with historical information included. A “Now” photograph has been added for the enjoyment of viewing the locations as they appear today.

The body of the calendar includes tidbits of historical information for each date of the year, compiled previously by former Museum Curator Carl Carey.

It’s been 10 years since the last release and it is hoped that Fayette Countians will enjoy the new edition.

The historic calendars sell for $5 each with proceeds to assist in the operations of the Fayette County Museum. Copies may be purchased at the museum during business hours, or by calling 740-335-2953 and leaving a message.

Three local businesses have volunteered to assist by making them available at their locations, Fayette Travel Centre, 142 E. Court St., Watson’s Office Supply, 224 W. Court St. and Fayette Barber & Style Shop 126 N. Fayette St. Also, calendars will be available at the Scarecrow Festival display, located at the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce office.

These calendars make a inexpensive gift item, or an addition to one’s calendar collection.
