The 4H History Seekers will once again present "Back in Time," a dinner theater event created to bring awareness to regional history and Alabama's Bicentennial, as well as to lend support and visibility to the Lee County Historical Society.

The second year of Alabama's three-year bicentennial celebration, which began in 2017, is reserved for honoring people. Guests attending "Back in Time" will have the opportunity to hear form many of Lee County's most noteworthy historic characters.

Special visitors will include Auburn's finest — George Petrie, Charles Allen Cary and John Hodges Drake. One might also expect to encounter local teachers and their students, train conductors, bankers, merchants, cattle drivers, grist mill operators, blacksmiths, naturalists, clergy and choirs, roving musicians, farmers, mail carriers, travelers on the Old Federal Road, Native Americans, African-Americans and the first women to attend Auburn University, among other characters.

This second "Back in Time" historical holiday celebration will be held at Pioneer Park in Loachapoka on Dec. 8 from 5 to 8 p.m.

Traditional seasonal music will be provided as guests gather and prepare to enter the early 1800-1900s. Once escorted to their tables, attendees will be visited by costumed servers, who will provide a period-appropriate, multi-course meal within the historic buildings.

Character actors and actresses will visit each table and provide close, personal opportunities for attendees to honor th people of Alabama. This educational entertainment will provide event participants a special glimpse of "Back in Time."

The event is endorsed by Alabama200 and sponsored by the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts and Humanities.

Tickets are $50, with all proceeds considered donations to the Lee County Historical Society. Tickets can be purchased by calling the LCHS at 334-887-3007 or by visiting the organization's website at leecountyhistoricalsociety.org.
