John Gott Library Celebrates Opening of Robert L. Sinclair Education Center WINE FINDS, CIGARS & SURPRISES Warrenton’s best source for great wine, premium cigars and craft brews Local history buffs are likely well aware of (and perhaps members of) the Fauquier Heritage & Preservation Foundation (FHPF), a nonprofit dedicated to exactly what its name says—preserving the county’s heritage. Its impressive John Gott Library houses more than 6,000 books as well as a host of historical items related to Fauquier County, the Northern Piedmont, the Civil War, and the Commonwealth of Virginia. This month, FHPF is delighted to announce the grand opening of an adjacent building, the Robert L. Sinclair Education Center, named in honor of FHPF’s longtime president, Bob Sinclair, for his decades of service to the Foundation. On Saturday, October 14, at 9:30 a.m. a dedication ceremony will take place, unveiling a plaque that honors those who were instrumental in the Education Center’s founding. Bob is quick to point out that the Foundation paid nothing for this second building, which was generously funded by Dr. Dave Collins and his wife Mary, Peter Schwartz and his wife Anna Moser, and the Ohrstrom Family Foundation. “If they hadn’t stepped forward, we wouldn’t have this additional space,” Bob says. He explains that the new building will be dedicated to conference and research use, as well as lectures, presentations, and exhibits. Some of the items originally housed in the John Gott Library will be moved to the new building, including a display of unique items (recently transcribed letters, historic county maps, and more) dedicated to “America’s greatest generation.” The Robert Sinclair Education Center is located at 4118 Winchester Road in Marshall. The public is invited to attend the dedication and tour the facilities afterwards. Music will be provided by Skip Glascock’s Cobbler Mountain Grass Band, and light refreshments will be ser ved.
