Book launch

The Mathews County Historical Society held a book launch Saturday for the latest in the “Historic Homes and Properties of Mathews County” series at the Tompkins Cottage Museum. The book, the fourth in a series of five, includes information on 10 historic homes in the county—Auburn, Augustine Diggs House, Augustine F. Hudgins House, Cedar Grove, Gwynnville, Henry Sibley House, Hyco-Haiku House, Isleham, Lilly House, and Seaford. Homeowners able to attend were, from left, Diana McDonald of Lilly House, Sarah and Mary Doss of Isleham, Lynn and Chip Hornsby of Auburn, and Robert Petersen of Augustine F. Hudgins House. Homes are selected for inclusion based on their architectural significance and historic value.
