    A New Book: "Images of America: Strasburg",
    by Kathy Kehoe.
    Local historian Kathy Kehoe has been writing folk history for more than 40 years. Her new book is part of Arcadia Publishing's "Images of America" series which celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photo-graphs, Kehoe presents distinctive stories from Strasburg's past that shaped the character of our community today.

    It is also available at such on-line stores such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

    New Exhibit from Belle Grove:
    In honor of local historian and long-time Museum Board member John Adamson (who passed in November of 2021), the Belle Grove Plantation was able to establish the John H. Adamson III Memorial Fund. The first project to benefit from the fund, Belle Grove has published an online exhibit about the Jackson family, the story a free Black man from Frederick County named Emanuel Jackson and how he purchased the freedom of his children and grandchild who were enslaved by the Hite family.
    The Museum is pleased to be a part of this first project, made possible from donations from the Museum and others. The theme of this online exhibit is the freedom of enslaved, a topic John was interested in pursuing.
    Here is a link to that exhibit..
