Newspaper Tidbit: Old Homes of PWCo

Manassas Journal
13 July 1933


Participants in the program "Old Homes of Prince William" which was presented at the recent meeting of County Homemakers Association.

On the left is Mrs. Benjamin Brown, who represented Effingham; Miss Mildred Ewell told of early days in her own home, Edge Hill; little Clara Bell Carter and Miss Mary Louise Carter pictured interesting happenings at Mt. Atlas and Erindale; and Miss Maude Ewell gave an account of life and conditions during the early years of Bel Air.

[Effingham plantation was recently purchased by a private owner who announced their intention to convert the historic property into a winery.  There have been decidedly mixed reactions in the Nokesville community to the plans. ~cgl]
