Historic Effingham Society showed how life used to be with its Olde Effingham Day at the Effingham Museum and Living History Site on Saturday.

HES volunteers gave live demonstrations in the blacksmith shop, carpenter shop and moonshine house. Civil War re-enactors fired cannons at the top of each hour.

Several musicians performed throughout the day. Visitors also could see the progress being made on constructing a replica of the one-room Bethel School.

Admission was free. Concessions were sold, including the popular hash and rice, with proceeds benefitting Historic Effingham Society.
