Touring Through Time in Surry

The town of Surry participated in the Touring Through Time weekend on July 28 and 29 for the first time, with displays at both the Old Surry Village Schoolhouse and Old Town Hall. The schoolhouse display featured photos, school books and a tour of the restoration progress to date. At Old Town Hall, a collection of historic farming, fishing and lumbering tools and artifacts were cataloged and on view, while a slide show displayed the town’s historic public buildings, churches and notable homes.
