Like Washington and Jefferson, he championed liberty. Unlike the founders, he freed his slaves

The manumission story of Robert Carter III made CNN #tellthewholestory #northernneck https://www.cnn.com/2021/09/05/us/robert-carter-iii-deed-of-gift-slavery-anniversary/index.html

It was 230 years ago Sunday that Robert Carter III, the patriarch of one of the wealthiest families in Virginia, quietly walked into a Northumberland County courthouse and delivered an airtight legal document announcing his intention to free, or manumit, more than 500 slaves.

Mark you calendars for April 2-3! #spring2022 #northernneck

After much consideration, we have come to the difficult decision to reschedule this year’s Wine & Oyster Festival for April 2-3, 2022. This decision was not made lightly as many people have devoted time and resources to this event.

With local health officials reporting high rates of COVID-19 transmission, we know this course of action is necessary. Ultimately, the health and safety of our visitors, staff, volunteers, vendors, and community is our top priority.

Individuals who pre-purchased a ticket to the festival received an email with information on how to transfer tickets to the April date or request a refund.

Thank you for your support and understanding and we look forward to bringing back the Wine & Oyster Festival in April 2022.

Celeste Johnston has made an exciting change to this class. You can paint either a red or white wine theme and you will paint on a slate. To make it even more exciting, your painting can be used either inside or outside, depending on the paint you choose. She has also designed this subject allowing for personalization of the wine label or personalization to be added above the wine bottle. This will be the perfect gift or for your own home.

A Grand Historic Icon on 133+ Acres in the Northern Neck

The sense of place is strong at Panorama. Standing at the double doors of the house’s center hall, one has a sweeping view of Chandler’s Mill Pond, a scenic 75-acre lake, and nearly 150 acres of ancient woodland, open fields and fenced pastures. Perched on a high promontory, this Georgian Revival all-brick manor house was designed by renowned architect Joseph Evans Sperry. This magnificent home was constructed in 1932, during the Country Place era in Virginia when houses were being built as they had been in ages past, as attested to by the elegant grand staircase that greets visitors upon arrival.

A recent extensive and historically sensitive restoration has returned Panorama to mint condition. Situated in verdant Westmoreland County, the house offers solace and quiet with a high quality of life for those searching for a primary or second home to escape urban life.

Virtual Visitor Center - Do we still need a physical location for an Official Visitor Center? - Check out my concept of a possible Virtual Visitor Center which would be used as a location specific local guide by people moving into or passing through our area. For an example, click on the link below: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1tPRq336JNbgkl-7-N09Bg-Bm48X6XjrA/view?usp=sharing The following is an example of how a QR code could provide access to a Virtual Visitor Center. A print version of the QR code would be posted around town for easy access by visitors. The QR codes can easily be scanned by Mobile phone devices to access the Virtual Visitor Center. The tour guide information can be updated with out changing the QR code. Scan the QR code below:

“The Bounds”, is a new park under construction in Warsaw, Virginia that will feature a pond, hiking trails and an outdoor amphitheater. The hiking trails will connect to the hidden gem that is known as the Enchanted Forest. Local Carver Tom Rhodes singlehandedly created the 11-acre wooded space that features a whimsical collection of children's characters from books and movies. Tom Rhodes began carving trees in 2004 and has completed about 85 carvings. At the request of kids, most of the carvings are cartoon characters. Click below and take a tour:
Most tourists and visitors are using Google Maps on their mobile phone devices to explore the Northern Neck and to help them decide where to go. The public interest in a place can be tracked using the public viewing stats provided on Google Maps. I have been using the public viewing stats of over 9 million views of my posts of local area photos and videos on Google Maps to understand what places (churches, museums, parks, historic places, business, restaurants, murals, etc.) are trending and what are the places that people are most interested in.
