After an exciting and successful first event last November, the folks at Woodville, Miss., are rolling out the carpet again this November to selected dealers from nine states to display their wares at the Second Annual Woodville Antique Show and Sale. It will be a three-day show open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Nov. 14-15, and from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 16.
Vendors will offer a range of furnishings and art, linens, silver, antique jewelry and decorative goods. Several of Woodville’s gift shops, antique shops and both antiques malls will be open as well. On Friday and Saturday afternoons, docents will welcome guests at the Feltus-Catchings Home, an early 19th century center-hall home that has been in the same family since 1899.
On Saturday evening, a gala dinner will be the weekend highlight offering a unique chance to glimpse this stunning, years-long restoration of the main house and gardens at Forest Home Plantation just east of Woodville on Whitestown Road. Tickets are available.
The Woodville Civic Club is an all-volunteer organization now in its 38th year. The club sponsors the weekend’s events to benefit the Wilkinson County Museum housed in the columned 1834 Office & Banking House of the West Feliciana Railroad on the courthouse square and their African American Museum across the square in the classic Federal 1819 Branch Banking House.
Woodville has 244 sites in its in-town National Register District community. Jefferson Davis called it home and visited there all his life.
