Save the date of Sunday, February 26, 2023 at 2pm for our History & Culture Program. Rockfish Valley Foundation (RVF) is holding this event to connect you to the wonderful place in which you live. Why did you decide to come here? How much do you know of its history and culture? THE PRESENTATIONS WILL HELP YOU DISCOVER THAT. Nelson County began on July 1, 1808. Descendants of many founding families still live in Nelson; the mountains and rivers are still here. Many historic districts have been created. HOW CAN YOU LEARN ABOUT THEM? WHAT RESOURCES ARE THERE? WHERE AND HOW TO FIND? SAVE THE DATE FOR THE PROGRAM. LISTEN AND LEARN FROM: Tommy and Yvette Stafford; Susan Huffman; Peter Agelasto, Woody Greenberg, Lynn Coffey, Mary Rose, Mary Cunningham, Gene Hughes and others.
RVF has assembled the best and brightest to open your door to the Nelson County and Rockfish Valley past and welcome you to its culture and history. The program catalyst was creation of a searchable index for over 1000 stories of people, places and things contained in Nelson County Life and Blue Ridge Life which was the great work of Tommy and Yvette Stafford. The 192 issues of these magazines join the writings and publication of Lynn Coffey with 300 issues of her BACKROADS magazine and many others. We explain access to the Nelson County Life and Blue Ridge Life magazines searchable index and online stories; the Backroads magazine searchable index and access to its paper copies; access to Rockfish Valley stories in Crozet Gazette; and provide a lot more practical info. This program will also be offered via zoom. To obtain a zoom link or to sign up to attend in person, email: [email protected]. Free and open to all, but Tuckahoe Clubhouse space is limited.
