A special Open House will be held at the Middlesex County Museum on Sunday, August 7 from 1-3 p.m. for the opening of Middlesex Early Inhabitants.
Showcasing fossils and Native American artifacts found in the local waters and soils of Virginia, this family friendly exhibit is a perfect way for the kids and grandkids to learn about early county history. Refreshments will be served.
The fossil section contains multiple showcases of shells, teeth, bones and even dinosaur excrement from the animals that lived here before humans came. Nancy Gibbs, a recent donor of her private collection of fossils to the museum, will be there to discuss her forty years of collecting. She will bring her specialized tools and gadgets that she uses to find her artifacts.
The museum is located in Saluda at 777 General Puller Highway, one block from the historic courthouse square.
