An important part of FVRC is preserving area history through educational programming. An annual series “A Step Back In Time” highlights nearby communities such as Stewart, New England and Frost. By partnering with the Southeast Ohio History Center, located in Athens, we bring interesting speakers and artifacts to programs at FVRC. A program featuring information about Lord Dunmore and Fort Gowan by SEOHC Director Tom O’Grady will be scheduled in May 2019.
The yearly membership fee for Federal Valley Resource Center is $10. Payment can be made in person at the Resource Center or through PayPal.
FVRC is proud to support local artists by hosting Art Shows. Past shows include 80+ works by Charles Byron, Robert Borchard and Cosette Byron Jarvis.
