Strasburg Virginia Gunsmiths: "The American Long Rifle"
St. Pau's Lutheran Church, Strasburg, VA
Strasburg Virginia Gunsmiths
Please join us on Sunday, June 9 at 2:00PM at St. Paul Lutheran Church 193 W. Washington St. Strasburg for a program about a most important and interesting part of our county and country's early history.
The American longrifle is an icon of our country's early history and culture. Longrifle collector, John Adamson will present his thoughts on the development, manufacture and use of the longrifle with special emphasis on rifles made in Strasburg Virginia. Join us for a rare opportunity to see and feel Strasburg longrifles from both John's personal collection and from long time local collector John Reiley.
John will give a brief history of rifle making in the Strasburg area using high quality photographs to show the art, form and function of some of the best local rifles. He will share details about local longrifle makers including where and when rifles were made in Shenandoah County and nearby areas. If you have never had the opportunity to look closely at the beautiful hand work of the Valley's early riflemakers, you are in for a treat.
As always, the public is welcome to attend and refreshments will be served.
