Belle Brezing event at the Lexington History Museum

The Lexington History Museum is hosting Belle's Birthday Ball, a fundraiser for the Lexington (KY) History Museum, on Thursday, June 17. Windies know that the divine Miss B. was the inspiration for the character, Belle Watling, in Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind.
