The Floyd County Historical Society is excited to announce the upcoming opening of the 2019 exhibit titled, “A Tribute to the Churches of Floyd County”.
The exhibit is the center of a year dedicated to honoring and sharing the history of the churches which played such key roles in shaping the history of Floyd County. The exhibit will open Saturday, April 27 with a reception at the Historical Society Museum from 2-4 p.m. The museum will be open beginning May 2 through November on Thursday and Fridays from 12-4 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. The reception and exhibit are open to the public with free admission.
The Historical Society will continue to share the dynamic history of Floyd’s churches with a series of articles focusing on the history of specific churches as well as key church leaders. The articles will extend the focus on specific churches and congregations which began with the publishing of the 2019 Historical Society calendar, “Churches of Floyd County, Virginia”.
The exhibit seeks to illuminate the close connection between church, community and county history, highlighting the specific denominations and individual congregations. Church leaders and local government leaders often overlapped in early county history, political allegiance was often tied to congregational support and community planning and organization was typically accomplished through the church. Please join us in exploring the history of Floyd’s churches through the new exhibit and upcoming article series.
The Floyd County Historical Society Museum is located at 217 Locust St, Floyd; directly across from School House Fabrics.
