Android : The woodwork in passage of the Francis Land House is painted Spanish Brown with black baseboards. These dark colors are usually found in high traffic areas and are perfect for hiding scuff marks or dirt tracked in by the many visitors the Land family likely saw! #RainbowMW

Twitter Web Client : The stage was the hub of activity at Princess Anne County Training School/Union Kempsville High School. Performances including musicals and dance shows brought the stage to life and are fondly remembered by the alumni! Did you participate in a performance at school? #PlayMW

Android : Ever wonder what secrets hide behind plaster? While doing restoration work at the Lynnhaven House, a surprise greeted us! Prints, including turkey and dog prints, were found on some of the bricks making up one of the fireplaces! How cool! #SecretsMW #MuseumWeek

Twitter Web Client : #WomenInCulture include Sarah Thorowgood! This founding mother of Virginia Beach was widowed three times but never let that stop her from continuing to develop the Thorowgood plantation. She even used the law to protect herself from her husbands debts left to her when they died.
