A local museum is remembering Virginia’s history.
“The Great Charter and the General Assembly: Founding a Legacy in 1619,” an exhibit, is available for viewing at The Weems-Botts Museum in Dumfries.
Set up at the annex until June 21, the eight-panel display is centered around the Great Charter of 1618.
The charter eliminated martial law, approved of private property, and allowed the Virginia governor to request that the General Assembly take action on legislation, according to a release from Historic Dumfries Virginia.
Historic Dumfries Virginia, a non-profit, operates the Weems-Botts Museum.
Citizens may see the exhibit between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Thursday through Monday.
Those who would like more information about the display or the history of Dumfries may call 703-221-2218 or visit the Historic Dumfries website.
