The tour also will include Oatlands, Gleedsville and Middleburg, all of which are designated heritage sites along the Journey Through Hallowed Ground corridor.

 

Leading the all-day bus tour will be some noted volunteers - historians Phyllis Cook-Taylor, Louis Jett and Mary Randolph - all of whom were born and/or raised in Loudoun.

 

The tour begins at 9am at the Thomas Balch Library on West Market Street in Leesburg and ends there at around 4:30pm. Registration deadline is October 31st, or as soon as bus seats are filled.

Lisa,

 

Tours like that can bring an area to life far beyond what a book or speech can do. Being a history buff I would love to go.
