See Fauquier Indian artifacts

Jimmie Eustace of the Southern Fauquier Historical Society will display a large collection of fossils and Indian artifacts found in the Cedar Run and Elk Run valleys of lower Fauquier County at the Bealeton Library at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 13.

After a short orientation, those attending will be able to examine the items and ask questions. There is no fee or registration for the program.

The event is the first in a series of local history programs to be presented monthly by members of the Southern Fauquier Historical Society. Upcoming programs include topics such as The War of 1812 in Virginia and the role of Fauquier, the Culpeper battalion and the men from the Fauquier companies, the settlement of Bowenville, also known as Rappahannock Station or Remington, and Revolutionary soldiers' graves in Fauquier County.
