Buck Leonard Hall of Fame Legacy Tour & Back Yard Fish Fry

605 Atlantic Ave, in Rocky Mount
05 Aug 15:30

In Association with the 2022 Princeville Homecoming Tour.

Help us celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Buck Leonard’s induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame with a guided tour of his historic home museum and an old-fashioned back-yard fish fry!

Buck Leonard bought his home at 605 Atlantic Avenue soon after he began his historic Negro Leagues and international baseball career. Here, you’ll get a glimpse into the humble Hall of Famer’s life through his belongings, artifacts and mementos. 

Right out back, you’re in for a treat with tantalizing back yard culinary experience where fish is fried from a wash pot reminiscent of the ‘Old Days here in the South.  Dine on fried fish served with sweet corn on the cob, herb red potatoes, hush puppies, Southern-style coleslaw, and all the tea and lemonade you can drink!

Sample our Carolina Catfish Tacos, while our DJ spins the R&B beats.

Browse our record collector’s studio, with over 1,000 vinyls! (listen – buy ‘em, take ‘em with you!)

Limited seating available. Stay tuned for tickets.
