Help mark a milestone in the Wakulla County Historical Society’s endeavor to preserve our heritage. Since 2005 Murray McLaughlin, Vice President/Heritage Village Park, and others have aspired to develop a park and to restore heritage homes bound for demolition. Another milestone toward realizing the dream will occur on Wednesday, September 10, 2014 when The John Archie McLaughlin House (Circa 1892) will be relocated from Medart to the Zion Hill Road property. The house will travel north on U.S. 319 through downtown Crawfordville at approximately 10:00 AM. The Historical Society plans to celebrate this event as the house moves past the Wakulla County Courthouse and as it passes Hudson Park. Please join us if you are in the vicinity.
