Annual Pilau Supper

December 2, 2017

West Gadsden Historical Society will hold our annual chicken pilau, December 2, at the Greensboro Depot Railroad Museum Complex, 115 Duffle Ave., Greensboro, FL. Again this year, we will be hosting a silent auction of antiques and collectables.  Items include tickets to Sea World and Sea World Water Park, and unique and one of a kind art items. WGHS invites you to come and enjoy time visiting with your family, friends, and neighbors. Serving will begin at 4:30 p.m. for $8/plate. We appreciate the tremendous support received each year from our members and guests, and look forward to seeing you again this year.   We hope to see you there.

We NEED Your Help!!

We want to thank Stephen Pitts for refinishing the wood floors at the Dezell House. Stephen volunteered his expertise in floor refinishing to honor the memory of his father, Buddy Pitts.  Buddy loved Gadsden County and loved WGHS.

Kelly Clark, with helper Melissa Herring, graciously completed the interior painting of the Dezell House. We have a couple of more rooms to complete, but what has been finished now make this house look like a home.

The tile for the front hall fireplace has been ordered and installation is expected in early 2018

Other renovations to complete the Dezell House include:

  • Installation of the interior trim
  • Kitchen floor installation
  • Kitchen appliance acquisition and installation

If you are interested in completing or sponsoring completion of these projects, please let us know.
