Dear Members:

 

The Bluefield Historical Society will meet at the home of Dr. Darrell Belcher, 1430 Whitethorn, on Monday, August 5, 2019, at 6:30 p.m.  This home was designed by Alex Mahood in 1924, and is in a Spanish Colonial Revival style in blond brick with a red tile roof.

 

We are joining with the Bluefield Beautification Commission for our next project on our historic city.  This makes it possible for us to do larger projects.

 

Lisa Syndor bought an historic plaque for her home, Baker's Hill Inn.  This makes a total of 79 plaques that have been purchased.  Thanks to Don Williams who continues to update our website, bluefieldhistoricalsociety.org.

 

We hope to see you at our annual meeting.  Please return your membership form, or you can pay your dues at the meeting.  The $10.00 membership is per person.  Also consider an extra donation to help with our projects for the city as this is our only way of raising money.  Many members have chosen to do this in the past years and we thank them for their generosity.  Our donations are from $10.00 to $500.00.  We thank you for your past membership.  After two years as a nonmember, we will not mail a membership letter.  You may join anytime by going to our website

 

Anyone who would like to bring an appetizer may do so.  Beverages will be provided.

 

Yours truly,

 

Terry Whittington

Bluefield's American Revolution Bicentennial Time Capsule was dedicated July 4, 1976, with respect for the past and faith in the future to be opened July 4, 2076.  The Bluefield Civitan Club at the time created the time capsule as a project to celebrate America's Bicentennial.  The club dissolved in 2015, and the time capsule and the marble marker were removed from their original location in front of the Greater Bluefield Chamber of Commerce to 415 Federal Street in 2016-2017.  The marble was shipped from the Pentelicon Quarry in Athens, Greece.  Local Greek Americans, through AHEPA, purchased the marble and presented it to the city of Bluefield.  It offers a precious link between our two countries in celebrating the democratic ideals that our forefathers established in the building of this great great nation.


Board Meetings

Second Monday of January, April, July, and October if there is business to be addressed.  Please notify the secretary for the location of the next meeting.
