  • The Lunenburg Legacy by Gay Neale is a history of the county sponsored by the Lunenburg Historical Society. It will be a hard-cover volume of 300+ pages, with a jacket cover painting by Eldridge Bagley and other illustrations by local artists as well as copious photographs. The book will cover the history of the county with a focus on the past 100 years. It is not a genealogical reference, although people and places will be cited. It is a celebration of a place that has sense of pride; an identity based on independence, strength and humor; and a unique situation in the state of Virginia. The book probably will be priced at $30.00. Those interested in purchasing can put their name on the mailing list of the Lunenburg Historical Society, c/o Mrs. Jackie Clement, P O Box 783, Victoria, VA 23974-0783, or e-mail Gay Neale, at
