TAVARES — More than five dozen visitors to the Lake County Historical Museum on Oct. 26 found themselves in a "pickle" as they had to choose between activities, exhibits and pickle samples all in a celebration of the County's cucumber heritage.
The museum hosted the first International Pickle Festival as a way to draw visitors to the museum and to have them learn about how the County was a leading producer and shipper of cucumbers in the 1920s.
There is always something new to see and do at the Lake County Historical Museum, located on the first floor of the Lake County Historic Courthouse at 317 W. Main St, in Tavares. The museum, which features free admission, is open 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays. For more information, call (352) 343-9600.
