The Mosby Heritage Area Association Presents A Gospel Concert Fundraiser for Willisville

August 11 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm

A Gospel Concert Fundraiser for Willisville, titled The Path Through WIllisville with Carol Lee, will take place on August 11th.

The Mosby Heritage Area Association has partnered with the residents of Willisville to have the village added to the National Register of Historic Places. Freedmen founded Willisville in southwestern Loudoun County, Virginia after the Civil War and it is one of the best-preserved villages of its kind. These African-American communities represent a significant part of Virginia’s history, and Willisville would be among the first in the Commonwealth to receive National Register designation.

The final application for its addition to the Register must include a well-researched and documented survey of the village’s 15 residences, former schoolhouse and country store, and its Methodist Church. Mosby Heritage Area Association is campaigning to raise $15,000 to fund the professional historical research, facilitate the process, and complete the application.

Join them and the citizens of Willisville for a gospel concert featuring music, food, and refreshments. Performers include:

The Gospel Tones

Mt. Olive Baptist Church

Rectortown, VA

The Voices

Agape United Methodist Church

Purcellville, VA

Sistah of Praise

Middleburg, VA

Refreshments and light fare will be served and donations will be accepted to help Willisville reach its goal!
