Historical society sets annual meeting July 22

The annual meeting of the Northumberland County Historical Society will be held at 10:30 a.m. July 22, 2017, at the Ball Memorial Library and Museum, 86 Back Street, Heathsville.

The program will include a talk about Menokin and the recent developments there as well as a discussion of the Battle of Falling Waters during the Civil War, reported Virginia Burgess.

After a short business meeting, executive director Sam McKelvey will present “Menokin: An Engaging Ruin.” His academic training includes a bachelor’s in geography and history from James Madison University and master’s in history from Virginia Commonwealth University.

Although his early passion was the Civil War, the preservation of landscapes, buildings and architecture have always been near and dear to his heart.
