Starr Homeplace will hold its last community day of the year Oct. 12.
"The weather is supposed to cool down with a cold front, so that it should be a good day to get out with the family," Joe Rolfe, owner, said. "If it rains for a few minutes, then visitors can duck into one of the 19 museum areas or the big barn. Upstairs in the barn is a continuous fundraiser of books that came from the Stone collection from their book store that was a part of Twin City Mall in Monroe."
Starr Homeplace in Oak Ridge is the perfect place to get a glimpse of the past of Louisiana. History that children see and read about in school comes to life, making learning fun. On the plantation there are 19 museums showcasing many aspects of life. The experience for older adults is one of fond memories - remembering things our parents and grandparents shared with us in the past. There is something for everyone.
"I always encourage artists and craftsman to come out and showcase their work, plus I don't mind if they want to sale also," Rolfe continued. "The large bottle tree in the field is a point of interest, as is the many relics of farm equipment spread throughout the 19 museum acre. You can step into a 50's style kitchen and step back in time and see a grouping of spinning wheels and a quilt frame, go across the field to the barn and enjoy sitting in the old porch swing."
Anyone interested in being a featured artist at the show may contact Rolfe at 758.1758. He is looking for people that want to demonstrate the facilities.
