An interesting collection of artifacts, from the Mt. Jackson Museum, is now on display at the Visitor Center in the Historic Shenandoah County Courthouse at 103 N. Main Street in Woodstock VA.
Among the many items featured are several original woodcarvings by the late historian and author, John Heatwole, and a calendar plate of years ago that was a gift of the local druggist, Marion Everly.
The Museum is located in the Mt. Jackson Town Hall/Visitor Center building at 5901 Main Street in Mt. Jackson, VA and it is open year round. They have a large collection of artifacts and rotate them from their storage on a regular basis. Many of the items on display for this exhibit are different from what they showcased in their Visitor Center exhibit several years ago.
The Historic Courthouse Visitor Center and Museum is open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM, year round. There is no admission fee.
