G. B. “Bushy” Cook: The Man and the Myth
Sunday, April 14 - 3:00 p.m.
Mebane Historical Museum, Lower Level
Even by today’s standards, heads would likely turn if one were to run into George Braxton in downtown Mebane.
Tall, lanky, and sporting a spectacular head of hair and beard to match, “Bushy” was a well-known local character.
Father of ten, both a farmer and mill worker, Bushy was probably best known for being the caretaker of the UNC Athletics’
Mascot Ramses. But there was much more to this well- remembered man that may surprise many. Find out about the man beneath the hair on Sunday, April 14, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. This program will be presented by a relative of Bushy, Phil Mace.
(Please bring your favorite Bushy recollections with you.)
