Our Story


We grew up in Virginia.  Our ancestors were farmers, merchants, and tradesmen throughout Virginia, West Virginia, and Maryland.  Many were deeply impacted by the Civil War.  Families were divided, loyalties challenged, and few escaped the difficulties that afflicted both sides.  Many of our family stories are included in our blog. 

Our customers include theater groups, dance troups, historical societies, museums, television and movie studios, event planners, and individuals attending historical events.
