Botetourt County History for July 15 Edition

Mark R. Woodie donated his original pen and ink drawing to the Botetourt Historical Museum in 1994. Woodie is a local artist who lives in Daleville and is on the Open Studios tour. In 1966 the Roanoke Historical Society donated half of the sales from “A Seedbed of the Republic” by Robert D. Stoner for the establishment of this historic Museum. Stoner became the first president. An old brick building, chosen for the Museum, is an eight-room structure directly behind the Courthouse, formerly used as offices and then apartments. It is owned by Botetourt County and operated by Botetourt Historical Society. It is now open by appointment.
