Commemorative 100th Anniversary with Screenings of PBS Film Series

One hundred years ago to the day, America prepared to enter what would become known as the Prohibition Era.  It officially began at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, January 17, 1920 and lasted until 1933. Franklin County, Virginia would gain enduring notoriety during this period in American history. The county’s legacy and long-established moniker, “Moonshine Capital of the World,” was an outcome of the Prohibition Era.
