Buckelew Day 2004

Jamesburg celebrated its namesake's life and legacy in grand style at the Buckelew Mansion. Saturday, September 11, 2004 was Buckelew Day, an annual celebration held at the residence of Jamesburg's namesake, Mr. James Buckelew. Lakeview was open for tours, President Lincoln was on hand, a strolling banjo player performed and the Jamesburg Canon was fired during the Civil War Encampment, among many other events throughout the day. One highlight was the historic trolley tours of Jamesburg, guided by Jamesburg Historian Tom Bodall, transporting visitors on a 45 minute historic journey through the streets of Jamesburg.
