To be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 27, 28, 29, from 10 to 5 daily, the show combines the usual popu- lar dealers' displays and scrumptious home cooking along with tours of three historic churches, St. A1- ban's Masonic Lodge which is a restored 1849 Greek Revival building, as well as open houses at the 1818 Brown Cottage, the massive ca. 1848 Greek Revival Ad- ministration Building at Eastern Louisiana Mental Health Hospital, the origi- nal 1820 Feliciana Court- house, and the Old Jackson Cemetery. Tours of historic buildings will be from noon to 4 daily. For fifty years, the Jack- son Assembly has welcomed visitors to its annual An- tiques and Art Show and Sale in the picturesque little town of Jackson, Loui- siana. The town of Jackson celebrates it's 200th found- ing in 2015 and many cen- tury old buildings still stand. Preservationists and history buffs will enjoy self-guided tours of the His- toric District, visiting the ~teriors of three historic churches and the original 1820 CourthoUse of- thb Felicianas. The exteriors of many Greek Revival struc- tures can be viewed from the sidewalk. At Centenary State Historic Site, two blocks from the Antiques Show, visitors can tour the two story columned 1837 West Wing dormitory and a restored professor's resi- dence which holds historic exhibits and period furnish- ings. Guests can also browse through fine antiques and incredibly varied collect- ibles assembled by select dealers from seven states, all fittingly displayed in two historic buildings sal- vaged with proceeds from past shows. William Cawood of Heri- tage Antique Maps in Rome, Georgia, will make his de- but at the show. He will bring hundreds of printed maps, of every country, mostly hand colored from the 1500's to the 1900's. He will join dealers bring- ing antique books, tools and the usual collection of fine furniture and collectibles. After enjoying the fasci- nating exhibits filling the vintage buildings, visitors can feast on homemade soups and steaming seafood gumbo, sandwiches and de- lectable desserts prepared by Feliciana's finest cooks and served in the 1835 McKowen Store's basement. An art exhibit and sale by regional fine artists will also be held all three days in the Old McKowen Store, next door to the antiques show. Admission is $10 and in- cludes the Antiques Show, Art Show, Tours of historic buildings and Centenary Historic Site, and is good for all three days.
