“The Salt Maker” – Jim Bordwine
“THE SALT MAKER”
On Monday September 3rd, the Russell County Fair invites you to spend your day with “The Salt Maker”, Jim Bordwine. He will bring to life the history of the Appalachia Mountain people and the role this region has had in the Ice Age, Revolutionary War, Civil War and some of history’s greatest moments including rocket fuel and moonshine. Jim Bordwine has a history of his own. Jim has been doing living history for over thirty years. His appearances on “Mountain Men” (History Channel) and his work to keep and share “real” history will add to your experience as you visit the sites where history was made and been kept.
