There was standing room only at the pre-opening ceremonies at St Bartholomew Church in High Springs where the long-awaited day to see the Smithsonian Museum on Main Street exhibit finally arrived.
There were introductory words by the mayor, by super-organizer Kristina Young, who put it all together, and keynote address by Karen Benz, who gave a great introduction to what it is all about– water.
This took place tonight, July 15, and tomorrow is the big day for the Grand Opening, free to the public.
Previews here of a few pictures of the great exhibits which will be seen tomorrow. Results all, of countless hours of work by dozens of individuals.
