Just a reminder that Give Local Piedmont will be on May 14th this year. This week Rappahannock Historical Society shares just a few of the items in our various files, and on display in our museum, relating to medical professionals in the county. We will be sharing just a small selection of the many items in our historical Rappahannock County collections every week until May 14th. Please come in when we are open to do research or just to browse and remember us on Give Local Day.
