Celebrating 20 Years 2003-2023
Last year, your support helped the museum preserve and put together our exhibit around the Nokes Family Manure Spreader. This year we are asking help in updating our Jenkins Collection exhibit.
LHFM’s Jenkins Collection of American Indian Artifacts comprises approximately 300 objects including projectile points, stone tools, pottery sherds, and small decorative items. The collection represents human habitation of the local Potomac watershed from approximately 3000 BCE – 1700 CE. By about 900 CE local communities were growing corn, beans, and squash, all of which originated in tropical climates and were traded, shared, and spread northwards by American Indians living all over the continent. Therefore, this collection is evidence of mankind’s first development of agriculture in the county. LHFM and the Virginia Piedmont Heritage Area want to make sure that every Loudoun student and resident has an opportunity to learn about indigenous peoples in Loudoun and how they interacted with the landscape.
