Albemarle-Charlottesville Historical Society Hosts Family Day
An archaeological dig was one of the activities for families to participate in.
Families came out for a little history lesson in Charlottesville Saturday.
The Albemarle-Charlottesville Historical Society and the Virginia Discovery Museum hosted their first family fun day at the McIntire Building.
The event featured activities such as a costume station for kids, a bark rubbing tutorial, and an archaeological dig.
"I think it's important for families to know about the community where they live and the history of the people that came before them and who formed the community that they know today," said collections manager Keri Matthews. "We have an exhibit about Mr. McIntire who was a civic benefactor and who donated McIntire Park."
All of the proceeds from Saturday's event will go to the Historical Society.
