Holiday Greetings from the Gott

We Give Thanks

Thank you to all those who submitted feedback after our November newspage dedicated to Northern Fauquier Veterans.  We are curating an updated list of Fauquier Veterans, and expanded to include veterans of the entire Count, that will be published in the early Spring of the new year.  We also plan to add this list to our web site and Facebook page.  Once again, if you know of any Fauquier Veterans who were not mentioned in the November newspage, please help us update our list by contacting the Gott Library with your additions.

A special Thank You to Mr. and Mrs. Thorpe of Warrenton, who graciously hosted the Gott Library Board of Directors for a guided tour of their extraordinary historical home, which was recently featured in the December issue of Early American Life magazine.  A newspage dedicated to their work and collection is planned for the new year.

Seasons Greetings

The crisp air and smell of chimney smoke signals the start of the holidays here in Fauquier.  Main streets all over the county are decked in red and green boughs and candles glimmer in window panes.  Here in Marshall, we are preparing for our annual holiday parade to be held the morning of December 5th on Main Street.
