Boneyville Days

Published 1:23 pm Thursday, July 26, 2018

Descendants of former slaves Alfred Simpson and Napoleon Bonaparte “Boney” Hays sponsored the inaugural celebration of Boneyville Days.

Descendants and anyone affiliated with Boneyville made their way in both locally and from across the country. Many visitors proudly wore t-shirts that read, “There is no Ville like Boneyville.”

Fun and games and fellowship were the theme for the day and each visitor left their mark on the day, literally, by putting their thumbprint and name on a large canvas to commemorate the occasion.
