Description

Shenandoah Valley Heritage Day: Preserving Family Dreams

Patsy Cline worked hard to realize her dream of becoming an entertainer. Inspired by her story, which is told in the MSV current exhibition Becoming Patsy Cline, this FREE event will help participants discover the dreams in their own family histories and preserve the objects that tell those stories. The event, which is presented with the Shenandoah Valley Genealogical Society, includes presentations from research experts, as well as information tables hosted by historical societies and research organizations throughout the day.

At 10:30 a.m., Charles Mason, a certified genealogist, will present a lecture particularly designed for those just beginning family research. At 1:30 p.m., a demonstration by KD Kidder of Photoworks will explain how to preserve family photos, and at 3 p.m., museum professional Janie Carscallen will discuss the preservation of textiles.

Lecture seating is first-come, first-served; tickets will be available beginning at 10 a.m.

Heritage Day activities are free to all. Regular admission rates apply for gallery tours.

Description

The Museum of the Shenandoah Valley (MSV) tells the story of the art, history, and culture of the great valley for which it is named.  First opened in the spring of 2005 and designed by the internationally acknowledged architectural firm of Michael Graves & Associates, the MSV joined Glen Burnie Historic House and Gardens—which opened to the public in 1997—to form a regional history museum complex in Winchester, Virginia. The Museum is open year–round; the house and gardens are open March through November.
