Military history buffs and fans of historic technology are invited to a historic firearm show under the pavilion at Walnut Grove Plantation the night before “Walnut Grove on the March,” Friday, March 4, 6-9 p.m. The show will feature re-enactors to show off their authentic and replica historic firearms and answer questions.

Have you ever wanted to know more about your grandfather’s rifle, your great-grandfather’s shotgun, or your great-great-grandfather’s muzzleloader?  Jim Kelly of Darlington Gun Works will be on hand to apply his 67 years of experience building guns to an appraisal of your historic firearm. Set your sights on this event!

Admission is $5 per person; $50 per firearm appraisal. All weapons brought on grounds for appraisal must be empty of ammunition and will be inspected by a representative of the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s office prior to admission to the show.  Spartanburg County Historical Association does not permit concealed carry of firearms inside its buildings.
