Tradition resumed at historic church

It has been about 80 years since the coal-oil lantern, shown above being lit by David Scott, was used at the Historic Eagle Springs Baptist Church. The lantern was recently returned to the church and re-installed in time for the recent reunion. Scott used a candle rather than oil for the lighting ceremony.
