Black House hosting fundraiser Saturday
Black House original

The Black House will be holding its annual Bazaar and Fish Fry this Saturday, June 9, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

According to Black House executive director Jeanette Lowery, she’s not exaggerating the truth with this whopper of a fish tale.

“They won’t get a little piece of fish,” said Lowery. “They’ll get a slab of fish, a nice-sized piece of fish. The seasoning we use is some of the best I’ve eaten. I could stand there and eat a piece of it all by itself. It’s good fish. I guarantee it. Everyone bragged over it last year.”

A fish dinner will be offered from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Along with delicious fish, visitors will receive fries, slaw, hushpuppies, and a drink. Cost is $7. To-go order are welcome.

The bazaar, which will last the entirety of the event, will offer a variety of vendors with various items for sale.

An open house with tours of the building will be offered. It is one of the oldest buildings in Warren County. Constructed in 1825 by Jesse Coffee, it is on the corner of West Main and High streets.

The Black House was deeded to the Eagle Club in 1984 with Lowery supervising its restoration and maintenance since that time.

The Black House derives its name from previous owner Dr. Thomas Black.

Tours are $5 per person.

Funds raised during the Bazaar and Fish Fry go toward continued restoration and upkeep of the property.
