Greenville business celebrates grand opening today, Sept. 4

A  grand opening celebration is scheduled for The Patio at Musicland, Sept. 4 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., with free coffee, iced tea and treats all day long.

The Patio at MusicLand is an open air shaded patio alongside the MusicLand retail store. It will be open this Labor Day weekend, and most weekends through October, when the hope is that it will be safe enough to re-open the store itself to the general public for the holiday season. For the 2021 season, The Patio will offer a daytime coffee and ice cream service, spaces for local craft vendors to display and sell their creations, and with a Farm-to-Table dining operation in the evenings working in co-ordination with Downtown Farms…. the small farm operated by Ken Donnell at the rear of the same property.

The Greenville Jailhouse Grand Opening Masquerade is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 18 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Downtown Farms outdoor event center (enter behind Greenville Sheriff sub-station). Live music and dancing with the fabulous music of local favorites – Rickety Bridge. Adults only. Non-alcoholic beverages served; no food provided. Suggest guest bring their own beverages if they wish something special. Face coverings are required for entry and must be worn in areas where social distancing is not possible (on the dance floor, etc). Mask-free seating areas with social distancing, and separate smoking areas will be arranged. Limited to 100 attendees. Free tickets available by texting to 530-566-2561. Prizes for the coolest face masks and best costumes.

The Greenville Jailhouse is a new Air B&B opened by Ken Donnell at the original Gold Rush wood Greenville jail which sits on his property at 207 Main Street in Greenville. Donnell has spent 15 years renovating this historic Jailhouse, and getting it ready so visitors can “spend the night in jail.” Despite its rustic, historic origins the Greenville JailHouse Air B&B includes modern amenities such as a comfortable bed, electric lights, a hot shower, and a fenced in outside seating area. Legend has it that the famous Gold Rush stage bandit, Black Bart, may have visited Greenville, and spent a night in this jail after being arrested by the local Sheriff as a vagrant, before being accidentally released the following morning. A costumed docent dressed as the “ghost of Black Bart” will greet visitors upon arrival, and clearly inform them of the realities for spending a night in this historic wooden jail ( don’t even think about lighting a candle!!).
