LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ7) When was the last time you used a map?

At the “Stonewall” Jackson house in Lexington Saturday, they’ll not only have kids using maps, but studying them and making them.

“We’ve got maps of the state of Virginia, we’ve got maps of the Blue Ridge Parkway, we’ve got maps of historic Lexington," says Denise Neas of the Stonewall Jackson House. "So we’ll see a variety of maps. And then we are going to walk around the garden, and we will point out landmarks – the carriage house, the garden itself, the privy – and then we’ll all make a map.”

They also have other map-related activities – like hunting for pirate treasure – and a map=making kit to take home. It starts at 9:30 Saturday morning and costs $10.
