Join James Madison University Professor Emeritus of Anthropology Dr. Clarence Geier for a hike around the property once owned by Isaac Hite Jr.  We will start with an orientation with coffee and pastries and then depart to walk onto private property to the southwest and see old foundations from mills and distillery buildings that were once a part of this booming plantation.  Dr. Geier has studied Belle Grove and the Cedar Creek Battlefield extensively throughout his career. Don’t forget your camera!

After the hike we will enjoy a hearty lunch from Shaffer’s Catering.
