We would like to share a recent article about the Redlands Historic Hotel published in the Tyler Morning Telegraph.

Palestine Main Street District continues to benefit from commemorative Dogwood Festival jars made in the 1980s.

“We are so excited! Jean Mollard found several boxes of the commemorative Dogwood Festival jars made in 1980 in her storage room. All the proceeds from these jars will go directly to our Main Street District and we are thrilled about it,” said Main Street member and business owner Linda Dickens. “You can purchase the jars here at our store [Charles E. Dicken's Fine Jewelry & Gifts] as well as Artifacts, Inc. in the Redlands building and the Visitors Center.”

These jars were made with hand designed molds by master craftsman Jimmy Cheatham, a cast iron sculptor with over 39 years of experience. Cheatham used hammer, chisel and grinding tools to create a cast iron mold for the jars that feature dogwood flowers.

This type of project requires the sculptor to work in reverse so that the image would be right side out when the glass is blown.

For many years, a new jar was made for the festival, featuring the date of the festival, along with Cheatham's initials.

“For many years these jars were made and sold each year as a souvenir item for the Dogwood Festival,” said Jean Mollard. There was one year we were unable to sell them all. I agreed to store them in one of my buildings. Those glasses were discovered in 2012. With such a limited edition made, these glasses are true collectors items.”

Locals can get their own commemorative jar for a $10 donation to the Palestine Main Street District. About 500 jars remain.

For any commercial,  restaurant, antenna or other lease space, please contact us.  We will try to accommodate any size endeavor.
