This fall the Legacy Museum held special Sunday receptions for members of area churches. The guests, many of whom are educators, found the afternoons to be pleasant opportunities to reminisce about preachers and friends featured in the exhibit and to share their memories with other visitors to the museum.
Rev. Elynor Rose brought her godchildren, Valencia Godbolt of Norfolk and Dwight Robinson of Madison Heights. Valencia said she particularly liked all the antiques in the exhibit; Dwight enjoyed the hats.
The late John A. Camm, who taught biology for years in Lynchburg and Amherst County schools, thought the Museum has done a “splendid job.” He liked the “Lord Teach Me to Pray” panel best because of all the familiar faces. His sentiments were shared by Edith R. Jones, a retired Amherst County teacher and member of Mt. Shiloh Church in Monroe, who remembered many of the preachers featured.
The special Sunday for Lynchburg churches is April 18.
