"Strange As It Seems" DVDs

Jim Price “Strange As It Seems” DVDs, while they last!

On October 23, Dr. Jim Price gave a talk as part of HSC’s Speakers Series called “Strange As It Seems: Actual Happenings in Shepherdstown.” One attendee called it “Jim Price at his best”, as I’m sure all who were able to attend agree.

Because many people asked for a copy of the presentation, Historic Shepherdstown arranged through Ascent Video Productions for a limited release of DVDs of the talk. The price is $15, most of which goes to defray the cost of mastering and copying the DVD. Dr. Price has generously agreed for the extra $5 to serve as a fundraiser to benefit Historic Shepherdstown.

During Christmas in Shepherdstown, the DVDs can be purchased at the Historic Shepherdstown Museum on Saturdays between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., cash or check only please. Those who would like to purchase them at other times can call or e-mail the office at 304-876-0910 or hsc1786@gmail.com to make arrangements to pick up a copy. The office is normally open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Again, cash or checks only please. It is also possible to send a check for $19 (which includes shipping & handling) to Historic Shepherdstown at PO Box 1786, Shepherdstown, WV 25443.

Holiday Ornaments Available

When the cornerstone of McMurran Hall was laid in October of 1859, the editor of the Shepherdstown Register predicted that McMurran Hall would be “a lasting ornament to our town.” He was not wrong, and in honor of that distinction, Historic Shepherdstown chose McMurran Hall as the first in its series of holiday ornaments. The cost is $20, and proceeds will be used to further local historic preservation efforts. If you would like one of your own, they will be available at the Historic Shepherdstown Museum, the Shepherd University Bookstore, and at Historic Shepherdstown’s Fall Fundraiser. You can also email or call Teresa at Historic Shepherdstown’s Office. (304.876.0910 or hsc1786@gmail.com)<
