FINCASTLE, Va. (WDBJ) - You can celebrate the new location of the Botetourt County Historical Museum.

The Executive Director of the Botetourt County Historical Society, Lynsey Allie, said the museum had to relocate from the original spot because of renovations at the courthouse.

It’s at 26 East Main Street in Fincastle.

Allie said its new location is in what’s known as the Gray house.

The museum highlights much of Botetourt County’s history, including a connection to Lewis and Clark.

Even if you’ve been to the museum, you might find something different in this new location.

“We’re trying to highlight different artifacts that maybe have not always been out previously at our other locations and we’ve trying to hopefully being in new exhibits and do different things,” said Allie.

The ribbon-cutting celebration starts at 5 p.m. Monday.
