A glimpse of Jennings County’s past and present will be featured later this month during the Town and Country Home and Garden Tour.
“This year we have both historic sites and newer unique locations on the tours, and we will be serving a garden tea luncheon at the (Jennings County Historical Society’s) museum,” said Chris Asher, Jennings County Historical Society president.
The Home and Garden Tour is planned for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 24, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 25.
Seven locations, in Vernon and North Vernon, are on the tour:
