Festival of History this Weekend

Charlottesville is celebrating its 250th birthday by having events all year...and this weekend is one of them.  The Festival of History has displays and reenactments throughout Downtown, with our Red Pirogue on 4th Street at Court Square Saturday 10-4, and Sunday 12-4.  Come climb aboard and see our posters and other items...

Since October

It's been a long while since I've written.  The construction of the new Lewis and Clark Exploratory Center has taken as much attention as you can imagine, and though we still do school groups and special programs at our temporary facility, we are closed on the weekends so we can concentrate on the last fundraising necessary to complete the building.  We've raised 85% of the funds... now we need the last 15%.  Please see our website if you are interested in donating...Thank you!
