The Meherrin Chapter of the Colonial Dames XVII Century recently hosted the William Taylor Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution at the Victoria Public Library to hear Stephen S. Israel, president of the Lunenburg County Historical Society, share information about Aspen Hill, the historical Boswell family home in Lunenburg County that he and his wife, Patricia, have been restoring. After the presentation, the ladies rode out to Aspen Hill Farm. Shown welcoming the entourage, from left, are Colonial Dames President Lucy “Cookie” Currin, Steve Israel, dressed as Dr. Lewis Archer Boswell and DAR Regent Merny Erby on the front porch of the house that dates from 1818. Dr. Boswell is well-known in aviation circles for his early aerial patents. Aspen Hill Farm, located at 2284 Wallace’s Bridge Road in Lunenburg County, will be open to the public from 1-5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 16 and Sunday, Dec. 17, to benefit the Lunenburg County Historical Society.
