The Limestone County Historical Saturn Rocket Ornament has been reordered and will go sale Tuesday, March 5th, at Osborne’s Jewelry in Athens.

If you’re a fan on the long time Alabama landmark, you’ll be able to purchase one to cherish.

The society chooses a historic Limestone landmark, item or event to commemorate as a hanging ornament with its only fundraiser of the year.

In 2023, the group chose the Saturn 1B rocket that had stood at the Ardmore Welcome Center for decades prior to being removed due to safety concerns earlier in 2023.

The ornament will be accompanied by an insert with a brief history of the rocket and its importance to Limestone County, and the funds will go towards community projects, such as helping place historical markers and restoring cemeteries and their markers.
