Happy Anniversary to "Brentsville Neighbors"

Well, better late than never.

I'd like to wish Brentsville Neighbors a very happy anniversary!

January 2014 saw the publication of the 100th edition of Morgan and Kay Breeden's wonderful newsletter, which honors and remembers the community that was once the very heart of activity in the County.  Brentsville was the county seat from 1820 to 1893, but there is far more to this little town than the County Court and the Jail.  Brentsville Neighbors often features newspaper articles from the past, letters and court documents, personal memoirs, current affairs (such as updates on the restoration of the Brentsville Jail), and information on the local flora and fauna.  Brentsville Neighbors gives the town a personality by giving voice to its people and places, past and present.
   
The newsletter is published monthly and is available via email or by visiting the online archives at Historic Prince William.   The February 2014 edition is hot off the presses and now available online.  Stop by and read an issue or two .. or three or more.  Brentsville Neighbors is clearly a labor of love and I think you'll enjoy it.
