A Gospel Concert Fundraiser for Willisville

The Mosby Heritage Area Association has partnered with the residents of Willisville to have the village added to the National Register of Historic Places. Freedmen founded Willisville in southwestern Loudoun County, Virginia after the Civil War and it is one of the best-preserved villages of its kind. These African-American communities represent a significant part of Virginia’s history, and Willisville would be among the first in the Commonwealth to receive National Register designation.

The final application for its addition to the Register must include a well-researched and documented survey of the village’s 15 residences, former schoolhouse and country store, and its Methodist Church. We are campaigning to raise $15,000 to fund the professional historical research, facilitate the process, and complete the application. 

Join us and the citizens of Willisville for a gospel concert featuring music, food, and refreshments. Performers include:

The Gospel Tones
Mt. Olive Baptist Church
Rectortown, VA
The Voices
Agape United Methodist Church
Purcellville, VA
Sistah of Praise
Middleburg, VA

Refreshments and light fare will be served
