"Wish  you  were  here"

Postcards – we all get them, most of us send them, but did you ever think of postcards as a picture book of history? Well, you might be surprised how much can be learned about a place by looking at postcards.  Please join us on November 27th as we travel through time and view downtown Orange, Virginia’s 20th-century history, changes, and development through images from the humble “penny postcard.”

The meeting will be held at our Research Center at 130 Caroline Street and is free and open to the public. Refreshments begin at 7:00 p.m., with the program to follow at 7:30 p.m.


Remember, the Annual meeting is scheduled for January 21st.  It is going to be held at American Legion Post 156.   The theme of the meeting is going to be centered on World War I.  Elections and the installation of our new officers will also be held.
