At Home with the Virginia Presidents

Life and Legacy of Appalachian Women

Thursday, April 20, 2024, 7 pm | Zoom Webinar

With author Heather Cole

Heather Cole will lead an engaging armchair travel and history talk about the eight Virginia-born presidents and the sites that shaped their lives. We will travel the state—from Staunton to Charles City and Wytheville to Winchester—to (virtually) visit the homes and historic sites of the Virginia presidents. Attendees will learn a bit about the presidents’ lives, take a peek inside their homes, and get ideas for their next history road trip.

Heather S. Cole is a public historian and writer living in Staunton, Virginia. She has worked in a variety of museums and archives, including as an interpreter for the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum in Staunton. She currently works as an archivist for the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Charlottesville, and does freelance work organizing and digitizing family and corporate archives. “Virginia’s Presidents: A History and Guide” (published in 2003) is her third book for The History Press.

Cole will have her books for sale and signing.
