On-Site with Insight: A 13-Part Loudoun History Series in the Field
On Thursday evenings from 6:30-9:30, March 7-June 6, 2019, join public historian and educator Rich Gillespie to learn about and visit Loudoun’s historic landscape. The 13-part series will get you out of the house and in to our vibrant and extraordinary community.
Whether you’re new to our area, are curious about Loudoun’s past, or just wonder about Loudoun’s place in our nation’s history, this is an experience you won’t want to miss. “This course is designed as an intimate, explore-by-night field trip-based experience,” says Gillespie, who taught U.S. history for 30 years at Loudoun Valley High School before moving on to be educator, and then executive director, with the Mosby Heritage Area Association. “Anyone interested in making sense of our Northern Virginia heritage while tying the themes of our past to our lives today should really enjoy this series.”
All sessions will include a field trip, and are taught chronologically. Among places used to teach the different eras of Loudoun’s past are Aldie, Lovettsville, Taylorstown, Leesburg, Neersville, Hillsboro, Ball’s Bluff, Middleburg, Atoka, Upperville, Lincoln, and Purcellville, as well as a visit to nearby Harpers Ferry. A full list is posted on www.novaparks.com/parks/aldie-mill-historic-park.
The fee for this series is $195 per person with proceeds benefitting Aldie Mill Historic Park, a property of NOVA Parks. Cost includes all course materials. Transportation will be provided by class participants and by car-pooling to keep the tuition for the class modest.
Advanced registration is required; call Tracy Gillespie, 703-327-9777 to pay by credit card or check, or visit http://apm.activecommunities.com/novaparks/Activity_Search/2620.
Registration ends no later than March 1st, and is filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Space is limited to 20 participants to ensure an intimate learning experience. For more information, call Aldie Mill Site Manager Tracy Gillespie at 703-327-9777 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
ALDIE HERITAGE ASSOCIATION OFFICIAL POSITION
ON NEW FIREHOUSE AS OF 7/19/18
"TThe AHA Board supports Loudoun County’s efforts to build our badly needed new firehouse. We deeply appreciate the County’s search for a new site, and its attempt to design a structure whose scale and style could be suitable for a designated Historic Rural Village. We strongly believe, however, that the station must be located outside of the Village in order to save the Village’s historical character, preserve its architectural coherence, and comply with Loudoun County’s land use policies. A new site could also provide our volunteer and professional firefighters with a facility that is larger, more comfortable and accessible, and that could be expanded in the future. We are eager to continue working with the County and our neighbors on this important community project to find the best possible outcome for both the Village and our emergency personnel."
