Hillsboro Heritage Days

posted Sep 12, 2016, 3:31 PM by Cal ender   [ updated Sep 12, 2016, 3:31 PM ]

Hillsboro Heritage Days are coming! Take a journey back to 1916. 
Dear Hillsboro Area Residents & Friends:

For three days—September 29, 30, October 1—Hillsboro will be transported back 100 years to the fall of 1916. This year's Hillsboro Heritage Days will be among the first events in Loudoun County's three-year World War I Commemoration program, and one of the first WWI commemorative events in the Commonwealth. 

In the fall of 1916, Americans were debating whether the U.S. should enter the European war, which had begun in 1914 and after the loss of millions of lives was, in the fall of 1916, mired in a gruesome stalemate. President Woodrow Wilson's reelection campaign was built around his pledge to stay out of the war, while his challenger, Charles Evans Hughes, urged Americans to be prepared for war.

Hillsboro Heritage Days will capture the context and feel of the fall of 1916, as Virginians pondered the prospect of war, prepared to vote for president, reacted to the Commonwealth's new prohibition law, and debated whether Virginian women should be allowed to vote. Read All About it Here

I hope you will all join us to decorate Hillsboro the week prior to Heritage Days to recapture 1916 with Wilson and Hughes campaign signs, pro- and anti-prohibition signs and suffragist signs. Join us as "actors" to create the historical vignettes that will occur Thursday and Friday nights and during the "Gaptoberfest" on Saturday

More information on how to participate will be forthcoming soon, but for now
 SAVE THE DATES—THIS WILL BE A BLAST!  

Thanks.
  
Roger

Mayor, Town of Hillsboro

New State Park in Loudoun! News Release from LaRock, Minchew, Black, and Higgins

posted Jun 30, 2016, 7:55 AM by Bill Hohl

State Park in Catoctin 
June 15, 2016
 
Loudoun County Now Officially Has a State Park!
 
Hamilton, VA - Yesterday, after years of work, the deed was recorded transferring approximately 600 acres of land in Northwestern Loudoun County to the Virginia Department of Conservation & Recreation. This transaction,first announced by Governor Bob McDonnell in January 2014, means that Loudoun County now officially has a state park!
 
The land for the state park was donated to the Commonwealth by the Old Dominion Land Conservancy (ODLC) of Purcellville, which received the land from the Robert and Dee Leggett foundation. The property borders theAppalachian Trail and includes historic farmsteads, deep woods and wildflower meadows.
 
Senator Richard Black stated, "I'm proud of all of the work our local elected officials have put into bringing this project to fruition.  It will be a lasting benefit to the community that will provide a place for people to enjoy the beauty of Loudoun County."
 
Delegate Dave LaRock added, "I'm excited about this new park being established and thankful for the efforts of Sen. Dick Black, Del. Randy Minchew, Supervisor Geary Higgins and State, County and ODLC staff to make this State Park a reality. This Park will be a great addition to Western Loudoun's already-vibrant winery and tourism industries."
 
Delegate Randy Minchew said, "I have hiked through this land a number of times and it is a great piece of property. It could become the Sky Meadows State Park of Loudoun County. This will be a jewel for the whole county."
 
Catoctin District Supervisor Geary M. Higgins added, "The significance of this new state park is immense and I have been privileged to have been a part of this process over the past three years.  This park will be a jewel to Loudoun County, the Catoctin District, the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Nation.  From a historical perspective alone this park preserves a considerable piece of history as this land includes the route Mosby's Rangers took to attack thefederal camp of Cole's Cavalry one-hundred and fifty years ago on January 10, 1864.  I commend Bob and Dee Leggett for their donation and foresight to create this park that will be enjoyed not only by residents of Loudoun County but by many future generations."

The 600-acre parcel is part of the900-acre Blue Ridge Center for
 Environmental Stewardship (BRCES), and is the initial portion of what may become a 1,500-acre park. It will be several years beforethe property is developed. TheVirginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, which manages the Virginia park system, will work to develop master plans for the Loudoun County property once acquisition is complete. The master plan will incorporate input from the local community, park planners and state officials.

Most of you have probably read that AT&T has withdrawn their request for a building permit of their huge project on theShort Hill Mt. We are grateful for those who actively voiced their objections and caused this to happen.

Yoga classes have been suspended for the summer and we hope to resume in September.

Line Dancing is still active but will have a brief hiatus and resume classes on Monday July 18.

When we begin the community breakfasts again September 10th,  we are hoping to have a yard/garage sale in conjunction with the breakfast.  We will be renting out tables to display your wares.  Stock pile your goods and we will let you know more about that in August.
