In The News
The Annual meeting will be held on Thursday, October 19 at The Prizery. The speaker will be Jon Kukla, author of Patrick Henry: Champion of Liberty. Society members and the public are invited to attend the dinner meeting.
A new page has been added to "About the Society". "Bulletin Briefs" will spotlight an excerpt from past Bulletins so that potential members can see the interesting articles included. And for current members, we will provide a sneak preview of an upcoming Bulletin article.
National Register Homes
A new Section has been added to the Society News!
Currently there are twenty-seven Halifax County properties that have been listed on either or both the Virginia Historic Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places as well as five groups of homes and public buildings designated as “Historic Districts” in Virginia.
One home will be added each month and will include a detailed description and photographs of the exterior and interior, if available.
Cotton Mills Tower Memorial Bricks
The Society recently announced that their annual ornament was the historic Cotton Mills Tower. They almost sold out in 1 day and if you have not purchased your ornament by now, they are essentially gone. No more will be produced. But you have not lost your chance to remember the iconic landmark.
