  Original Published: 10/13/2013Area residents could experience a step back in time during "Olden Days" held this past weekend in Lexington at the Richland County Museum. Museum president Kathleen Addlesperger says there were a variety of actives for families, including making apple butter in a gigantic copper pot. Singer-songwriters Sarah Goslee Reed and Kerry Kean were the featured performers at the Olden Days celebration. Pastor Paul Lintern was on hand to tell stories and Richard Cooper gave a re-enactment of a tanner and talked about his collection of animal hides and pelts. The Richland County Museum opened up in 1967 and previous to that, was the third school house in Lexington, dating back to 1850.
