(Submitted to The Democrat) Representatives of the Lebanon-Wilson County Chamber of Commerce join with members of the Fiddlers Grove Foundation and Wilson County Promotions to mark the season opening at Fiddlers Grove Historic Village at the James E. Ward Agricultural and Community Center in Lebanon. Cutting the ribbon in front of Stringtown General Store is Geneva Thomas, who was involved with the re-created pioneer village for several years.

Fiddlers Grove in the Ward Agriculture Center is open to the public April through October from Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. 

Fridays are special in the Grove. On April 11, the historic village was officially opened for tours with a ribbon cutting held by the Lebanon-Wilson County Chamber of Commerce. Each Friday there are tours guided by people in period costumes.

The tour includes a historic depiction of life as it was in the late 1800s and early 1900s and how early settlers lived and worked in the Grove. There will be artisans to give demonstrations ranging from quilting, sewing, wood carving, gourd art, blacksmithing and various other art forms. 

The General Store is also open for business Tuesday through Saturday for snacks and drinks. Antique artifacts will be on display, along with cabins and other buildings from the time period. Often the train museum will be open for train enthusiasts.
