In 1991, Mary Ann Williamson founded the Edinburg Heritage Foundation. Since that time, she has continued to publish a monthly Newsletter filled with both news about the Town of Edinburg and an eclectic collection of articles, family stories, historical information, memorabilia, local legends and a wealth of informative articles about life in the Valley during the last Century and beyond.
These newsletters are so interesting that many people have collected them for family members to read and reminisce. Many copies are in the Shenandoah Room at the Shenandoah County Library in Edinburg.
The newsletters are distributed to the members of The Edinburg Heritage Foundation and the Friends of the Edinburg Mill. (Membership information is available on this web site.)
