In conjunction with Virginia Tourism eight Shenandoah County sites will be co-sponsoring an inaugural “Local History Weekend” on Friday May 10 and Saturday May 11.

This event is designed to welcome individuals to visit the museums, archives, and historic sites that help care for and share the stories from our area’s past. On these two days the following sites will be open special hours to welcome all those interested in our community’s history.

These eight sites will be sponsoring a “Hunt for History” scavenger hunt where individuals who visit a certain number of sites will be entered to win a local history prize pack. Anyone interested in participating in this hunt should pick up a passport from participating institutions during the event and return it to the site which they visit last. Visitors to four sites will receive a single entry in the raffle while visitors to all eight sites will receive two entries.
