Newbern museum hosting annual dinner fundraiser

Wilderness Museum fundraiser, HillcrestBy MELINDA WILLIAMS


Wilderness Road Regional Museum will hold its annual fundraising dinner at Hillcrest Farms in Dublin Saturday, July 19.

The 6 p.m. dinner, to be held rain or shine, will feature the museum’s Cold Harbor menu of summer salads, baked ham, homemade rolls and a variety of desserts. Dinner will be served in the Hillcrest garden at 6:30 p.m., with musical entertainment provided by Bill Adams.

Pulaski native R.E. Wysor constructed Hillcrest Farms’ historic house in 1910. It later became the home of Ann Bolt and her late husband Ben. The house is surrounded by farmland, allowing dinner guests to enjoy a scenic view with their home-cooked meal.

For dinner reservations, call the museum at 674-4835 Tuesday through Saturday, 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Reservations also may be made by calling 674-8378 or 674-5055. The suggested donation for the event is $20.

Hillcrest is at 5280 Black Hollow Road in Dublin. Take Route 100 north of Dublin and then turn left on Black Hollow Road (Route 636) past New River Community College and Rockwood Manor.
