Friends of Sauratown Mountains and Hanging Rock State Park will host an open house at Vade Mecum on January 28, 2017 1pm until 5pm. This event is open to the public.  Come out and tour this beautiful historic property and learn about its glorious days from the past and talk with Designers who are making plans for the property's future. The property is located off Moores Spring Rd about 3 miles from Hanging Rock State Park. For those of you who are not familiar with Vade Mecum; Vade Mecum Springs & Resort was a popular tourist attraction in the early 1900's.  People came from all over the country to vacation at the resort and drink the renowned mineral water.  You don't want to miss the history talk by Steve Shelton and see some of the old memorabilia from those days (pictures, postcards, etc).
