Car enthusiasts take Fall Sojourn to Port Royal

Seventeen members of the Northern Neck Region, Antique Automobile Club of America, participated in their annual Fall Sojourn Cruise-In from Tappahannock to Port Royal on Oct. 3.

Eleven antique automobiles caravanned north on Route 17 at a moderate pace, arriving at the Horne’s Restaurant in Port Royal for breakfast. The members were greeted by Historic Port Royal Inc. president Carolyn “Cookie” Davis, who gave a talk on the history of the area, including insight into the demise of John Wilkes Booth who was killed at nearby Garrett’s farm.

The members also visited the Port Royal Museum of American History and the adjacent 1929 schoolhouse, and shopping stops at the Port Royal Trading Post and The Minnow Bucket, with the group ending the day at Stan’s Dairy Freeze in Montross.
