Genevive Hester
I joined the Perry County Jail Museum when I was 11 years old, in 1999. Mrs. Carol Isaac had her 5th grade class at 204 take a tour in 1999, I fell in love with Perry County History. It also helped I lived with my grandparents Dr. Clarence E. and Linda M. Cawvey, and we lived next door to the Museum. My grandfather minored at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut in world history, and my grandmother was a teacher. Together they believed my love for the history of the County to be a positive thing for me. After a long talk with Jean Ibendahl who was part of the Museum then, they agreed to let me join. In 2000, I was part of the committee to get the Museum on the National Register of Historic Places. During high school I left the Jail, but returned in 2018. Since then, I have become the resident expert on Pinckneyville, Pinckneyville Mardi Gras past, and the PCHS Basketball team.
