The Union County Historical Society will resume meetings, after a summer break, by hosting the J.W. Townsend family as they share the history of their family and home.

Sandra Langley Tyre (right) and Gale Langley Cules (left), current owners of the Townsend House, will lead the presentation on Mon., Sept. 30, at 7:00 p.m. Tyre has a business office in the old Townsend House, located on S.W. Fourth Ave. in Lake Butler, and has researched its history.

The program coincides with the 92nd birthday of Union County, which is being celebrated the next day, Oct. 1, at the Union County Public Library. (See article below.)

Prior to the Historical Society presentation, the board of directors will meet at 6:00 p.m. A slate of officers will be recommended by the board and presented to the society for election at the October meeting.

The Historical Society is located in the Townsend-Green Building and Museum (the old drug store) at 410 W. Main Street in Lake Butler.
