Sesquicentennial Survey

On March 14, 2020, Pewee Valley will be 150 years old. For the 1970 Centennial Celebration, a special committee under the auspices of the Town Council put together a year-long series of special events and exhibits to celebrate our colorful past. Today, Peweeans still enjoy some of the fruits of their labors: the City of Pewee Valley symbol, the Yule Log tradition and the caboose on Town Square. The Pewee Valley Historical Society wants to know how residents would like the celebration to unfold. Please complete this survey by August 30, 2017.
