West Gadsden Historical Society to host fundraising chicken pilau

Members of the West Gadsden Historical Society will be gathering for an annual Greensboro tradition: the washpot chicken pilau fundraiser.

On Saturday, January 22, the chicken pilau fundraiser will be held at the Greensboro Depot Railroad Museum (located at 115 Duffle Avenue, in Greensboro).

Local pilau chefs will be stirring up pilau and dishing up plates that will include coleslaw, pickles, crackers, tea, and a slice of homemade pound cake.

Plates will be $8 each.

Curbside plate-pick up will be available, or locals are invited to bring a lawn chair and sit outside with other members of the community while enjoy the chicken pilau and cool, January weather.

Plates will be served at 4:30 p.m. – and will continue to be served until the food runs out.

If you would like to come early, the depot museum and Dezell House Museum will be opening at 1 p.m. for tours.

The society will also be selling copies of their latest book, A Trip on the Apalachicola North Railroad, for $30 a book.

The book includes classic recipes from the region, and old-time tales of the Florida Panhandle’s revolutionary railroad, the Apalachicola Northern Railroad.
