Ham radio event

Members of the Middle Peninsula Amateur Radio Club will be operating a Special Event Station at Walter Reed’s Birthplace, 4021 Hickory Fork Road, Gloucester, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. The home will be open for tours during that time and the public is invited to attend while observing COVID-19 precautions. Visitors can also learn about ham radio and some of the unique history of the area. Dr. Walter Reed was born at the site in 1851 and was instrumental in conquering Yellow Fever. The antebellum cabin in which he was born was added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1973; several acres the surrounding area were added in 2015 by Fairfield Foundation which, along with the Gloucester Preservation Foundation, administers the site.
