Postponement Announcements

Dear Members of Historic Shepherdstown,

The Board of Directors of Historic Shepherdstown has made the difficult decision to postpone some of our upcoming events because it is important to help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

The Spring Museum Opening Reception, scheduled for April 3, will be postponed until a later date. You will be notified when we are able to reschedule.

The Museum Opening, scheduled for April 4, will be postponed to a later date. You will be notified when we are able to open. Just as a note, Smithsonian Magazine’s Museum Day, also scheduled for April 4, has been postponed.

The Speaker Series event scheduled for April 8 is also being postponed. We will work with our featured speaker, Dr. Raymond Smock, and the Robert C. Byrd Center for Congressional History and Education to find a date to reschedule and we will let you know when we are able to do that. We have not yet made a decision regarding our May Speaker Series event.

We are disappointed that we will not be able to see you at these events and thank you personally for your continued support of Historic Shepherdstown. However, your health and wellbeing are also important to us, and we believe that at this time everyone’s safety should take precedence.

Thank you for understanding. As we are able to reschedule, we will keep you informed.


Donna Bertazzoni

President, Historic Shepherdstown Commission
