The dogged determination of a Botetourt County woman and her late brother have helped lead to creation of a permanent record of the county’s African-American community. That collection is on display this month, as WFIR’s Evan Jones reports.

An opening reception is scheduled for Saturday, February 4th, from noon until 2:00 pm. The museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm and on Sunday from 2:00-4:00 pm. Admission is free. The museum is located behind the main Botetourt Count Courthouse building in Fincastle.
