On Saturday, July 2, 2016, the Town of Tazewell held a celebration of its 150th anniversary by hosting a Sesquicentennial Ball on beautiful Main Street. The Jeffersonville Skirmish Band provided 1860’s period music, and Joan Yates called the dances. A buffet catered by the VIP Room was enjoyed as guests dined on tables lining the street and took in horse drawn carriage rides through Tazewell’s historic district. Abe and Mary Todd Lincoln made a special guest appearance.
