(Moved to St. John's Church) Lost Attractions of Hampton Roads - Book Launch and Author Talk

Monday, June 10, 2019

We look forward to seeing you tonight, 7-8 pm for Lost Attractions of Hampton Roads! Due to electrical work being done in the museum's Great Hall, the talk has been moved to St. John's Episcopal Church located directly behind the Museum at 100 W Queens Way. Books will be sold in the museum gift shop, and the book signing will be in the museum lobby. See you then! Take a trip down memory lane with author Nancy E. Sheppard to beloved destinations for fun and families across Tidewater. Cruise the rails of Ocean View Amusement Park's "The Rocket" roller coaster, dig for fossils at Rice's Fossil Pit, celebrate the winter season at Portsmouth's Coleman's Nursery and learn the significance of Buckroe Beach's Bay Shore Beach Park. From the Great White Fleet to a Wild West park, journey through this vibrant history and discover whether such cherished places can ever truly be lost. The book will be available for $21.99. Special member price of $16 for this event!
