Reed Station Conflagration

(AVOCA) – Reed Station Conflagration will take place on Friday, October 25 at 5:30 p.m. at the former Avoca State Fish Hatchery.

In the first decade of the last century, Reed Station was a small but thriving community of Italian immigrants between Oolitic and Avoca.

It became the scene of a dramatic series of events that would baffle law enforcement and test community ties.

This event consists of a historic walk in which costumed reenactors explore the events at Reed Station; a light supper of soup, cornbread, and dessert, and a presentation by Believe Paranormal about their investigations at the former fish hatchery.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for students and may be purchased at the Lawrence County Museum.
