Heritage Heroes

Each year since 2007, the Mosby Heritage Area Association awards one or more distinctions as “Heritage Heroes” to local citizens who have made an important contribution or lifetime of contributions to the Mosby Heritage Area. These citizens exemplify true understanding of the historical resources of the region and deep commitment to preserving them. Their selfless efforts as stewards make them heritage heroes.
