Free Preservation Workshop November 18!
Do you own a historic house? Are you interested in historic easements, rehabilitation tax credits, archeological sites, or historic preservation generally? Do you want to list a property on the Virginia Landmarks Register or the National Register, or create a historic Highway Marker? The Virginia Department of Historic Resources can tell you how! Join us for a very special workshop, "Preserving History on the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula" at St. John's Church in Warsaw from 9am to 3pm Saturday, November 18.

The Speakers Series is held on either a Tuesday or a Thursday evening at Wellford Hall, St. John’s Church, Warsaw at 6 p.m. It generally consists of a speaker on some subject of historical interest and a casual “covered dish/potluck supper”. Look for great new talks next summer!
The 2017 PNNMP Summer Speaker Series was a great success, with talks
by James Russell about "The Civil War in the Northern Neck."
by Katrina Brown, an official of the Rosewell Foundation and a historic interpreter, on the slaves of Mann Page II and his wife Anne Corbin Tayloe.
In 2016, the Speakers Series included a talk by Marsha Sitnik from St. Mary's Whitechapel on the table top tombs of the Ball Family (their history and the restorations and repairs made possible by a grant from PNNMP); the Rev. Christopher Agnew talking about the history of St. Anne's Glebe in Essex County and the ongoing restoration and preservation of the Glebe (one of the few still left standing in Virginia), Robert Moncure, the Rappahannock River Keeper, showing the film The Rappahannock; and Howard Reisinger and Mary Douglas Lawton giving a presentation on the old Chinn house, Oakley, outside Lively.
The 2017 Annual Meeting and award of grants was March, 2017. It featured
the award of grants, followed by luncheon and a talk by Willie Graham, an
expert on architectural history who spent 35 years as curator of architecture
for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, speaking on "Regionalism and the
Traditional Practice of Building in Eastern Virginia."
