History is coming to life in Prince William County.
The Historic Preservation Division is hosting several events in the next few weeks.
The second annual “Brentsville Day” is among them, according to a release from the county.
From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on September 22, citizens will have an opportunity to visit the Brentsville Courthouse Historic Centre.
“We’ll have people cooking and eating and hanging out as though they lived there,” Historic Interpreter Lisa Struckmeyer said in a release. “It a classic example of a middle class farm house in Prince William County during that time frame.”
The free event will showcase local artists and feature entertainment from the “Andrew Acosta Band,” “Page County Ramblers” and “Skystone.”
Later this month, community members can learn about one of the first families in Virginia by attending “History by the Campfire.”
It will begin at 6:30 p.m. on September 28.
History by the Campfire, which costs $5, will take place at Ben Lomond Historic Site in Manassas.
Two more events are scheduled for the following day.
A Fall Migration Bird Walk is being offered at the Julie J. Metz Neabsco Creek Wetlands.
Those interested in participating in the walk, which begins at 8 a.m., should bring binoculars and guide books.
Between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on September 29, “Make, Create or Take Art!” will be held at Rippon Lodge in Woodbridge.
“We’ll have local artists from the Prince William County Arts Council, local high school art students and art teachers, art crafters, people selling art and youth tables for kids,” said Rob Orrison from the Historic Preservation Division.
Attendees must pay $5.
