Author, Mary Lyons, will speak about her book,   "The Blue Ridge Tunnel: A Remarkable Feat in Antebellum Virginia." Engineered by Claudius Crozet, this story is about Irish miners, their families and enslaved African Americans who for ten years hand-drilled and blasted through tons of rock to build it. They opened the way for western expansion.

Suzanne Fisher will speak on the DeJarnette papers.  Dr. Joseph S. DeJarnette was Superintendent of Western State Hospital from 1905 to 1943 and a prominent citizen of Staunton.  What do we know about him as a person?  A trunk filled with the doctor's personal papers found in the attic of his last Staunton residence and donated to the Augusta County Historical Society sheds some light on DeJarnette the man.
