    Join us for our June program to be presented by Nick Powers, Curator of Collections at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester. Nick will talk about the remarkable Henkel family of New Market. Though known today mainly for establishing one of the earliest German language printing businesses in the Shenandoah Valley, the family also included a talented array of ministers, artists, and craftsmen. Their influence spread beyond the Valley to places like North Carolina and Tennessee. Using the Henkel Press as a starting point, Nick will explore the multi-faceted endeavors of the Henkel family with the help of the rich letters, printings, and objects they left behind.
