By Ken Stanford Staff
JEFFERSON - The Crawford Long Museum in Jefferson is holding its grand reopening Saturday after being closed more than a year for renovations.
The museum dedicated to the celebrated Georgia physician who discovered anesthesia in 1842 will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event includes free horse-drawn carriage tours of historic downtown Jefferson.
Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and $3 for students and children older than 5.
A $50-per-peron fundraiser dinner for the museum will be held Saturday night starting at 6 at Fusion on the Square Restaurant. It includes a guided tour of the museum.
The museum has new exhibits and a revamped building after suffering from leaks and structural problems.
