Jackson County was the scene of a Bonnie & Clyde-type shootout along Route 21 in 1933. The end result was two fatal wounds and a third man sentence to die by execution. That is among the stories shared in "Trials, Tragedies & Triumphs."

See the 30-minute documentary about the 100th anniversary of the current Jackson County Courthouse.

“Trials, Tragedies & Triumphs” is being shown free of charge in the historic Alpine Theatre. Showtimes are 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 2. Seating is limited as social distancing will be observed.

The documentary was a cooperative effort of the Jackson County Commission and the Ripley Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Copies of the DVD will be available at the Alpine box office for $20. Also, a limited supply of “The Last Gallows: John Morgan’s Farewell” and “Ripley: The Man & the Town That Honors His Name” will be available.
