Sunshine on the Orchard House

       The rain was just stopping, the Bertye Maddux Band still playing on the main stage and the sun peeking from behind the clouds when this photo was taken during the Fiddles, Vittles & Vino event at Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site Aug. 26. Continued restoration of the 99-year-old Orchard House will be aided by proceeds from the ranch’s 28th annual three-day Folk Art Festival Friday to Sunday, Sept. 15-17. The sales event will feature more than 200 craft artists from around the United States. Admission, which includes guided tours of the Orchard House and Rock Ledge House, is $6 for adults, $4 for seniors and teens, and $2 for ages 6-12.
