Weddleville Old Settlers free bean dinner set


The Weddleville Old Settlers bean dinner will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the historic Carr High School, 10059 W. County Road 250S, Medora.

The free community meal will feature open-fire cooked beans, cornbread, coleslaw and dessert. Anyone planning to attend also may bring their favorite pitch-in dinner dish.

Historically, the old settlers of the Pea Ridge area conducted a homecoming picnic on the third Saturday in August, according to a news release from the Weddleville Cemetery Association.

The association has revived this tradition with a free bean dinner and pitch-in at the high school 5 miles west of Medora on County Road 250S.

Everyone is invited. Come and see the restoration in progress and hear the plans for maintaining, next phase of renovations and use by the community of one of the last standing pre-Civil War high schools in Indiana, placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
