FLUVANNA COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) -

On Sunday afternoon, the Fluvanna Historical Society hosted its Second Sundays event, which focused on patriotism. 

The visitors browsed works from local craftsman and artists, rode in horse drawn carriages and learned more about their family history. 

Individuals could connect with a genealogist to hear more about their family's roots in the area. 

The Old Stone Jail Museum and the Historic Courthouse were also open for tours.

Tricia Johnson, the director of the Fluvanna Historical Society, said, "I moved here 25 years ago from Richmond and so Fluvanna is my adopted home. But since I've been the director of the historical society for the last three years, I've been astonished to learn how much really important history has happened here over the years."

The next Second Sundays celebration will be in August. The theme will focus on the historic Dunbar School located in Fluvanna.
