Celebrate 50 Years of HCPL—and even more years of Glen Allen community history—as we are joined by two guest speakers.
Local artist Edith Schermerhorn will discuss her architectural renderings of area buildings, a collection of which are newly displayed at the library.
Historian Bob Lehr will give a talk on the history Mountain Road, which dates back to colonial times as a key path to the western part of the state. Several of the buildings and homes built on the road still survive and are open to the public. Hear their stories and those of the people that inhabited them, and about other local events including a nearby Civil War battle and a recent visit by a U.S. President.
Refreshments to follow; sponsored by the Friends of Glen Allen Library.
