The Periwinkle Beckons!

We had the absolute joy of going to document the Watson graveyard on the same property as one of the first Quaker meetings in Louisa County.   Here is Gloria Gilmore and her niece Doris Williams leaning over to touch a stone marking a burial site.  Both women are descendants of people once enslaved on this site.  So, the work begins in earnest!

BE SURE TO MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR MARCH 18TH FROM 10:30- 12:30 FOR THE PRESENTATION BY DR. RAINVILLE AND MR. JIM HARE, DIRECTOR OF HISTORIC REGISTRY AT THE VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF HISTORIC RESOURCES. HELD AT THE LOUISA ARTS CENTER, 214 FREDERICKSBURG AVE. IN LOUISA.
