Neville celebrates bicentennial

The village of Neville celebrated its bicentennial with a festival June 28.

Attended by approximately 1,000 people, the festival was designed not only to celebrate 200 years as a municipality, but to allow native Neville families a chance to recognize and reunite with loved ones.

Donna Simmons, who arrived in Neville from California last week, said that the event was the high point of the year for her and her whole family.

“I am hoping to fill in some missing information on our family tree,” Simmons said. “I am very proud to have come from such a close-knit and proud village.”
