“A Visit to Historical Sites in King George County” will be the topic of an upcoming course from the Rappahannock Community College Educational Foundation’s Rappahannock Institute for Lifelong Learning (RILL). Classes will take place on March 31, and April 7 and 14 (Fridays), from 1 to 3 p.m.; the first session will meet at the King George Museum, King George Courthouse, with further locations to be announced.
Many historic sites still exist in King George County, but often they are not open to the public. This class provides an opportunity to explore some of these sites, including the surrounding areas. Historical sketches of two related sites will be presented each week.
Instructor Elizabeth Lee graduated from King George High School and the University of Mary Washington. She is a past president of the King George County Historical Society, director of the King George County Museum and Research Center, and the author of several books on King George County. A current project is titled “The Last Hope, John Wilkes Booth’s 34-Hour Escape Through King George County, Virginia.”
Advance registration, with a tuition payment of $35, is required to take this course.
