The Freeman Store’s Used Book Cellar is having it’s 4th birthday and we’re celebrating!
The community has been extremely generous bringing book donations and purchasing a tremendous amount of books since 2016 and we’re very grateful.
On Saturday, October 3 @ 12-4 we will have specially priced used books, treats, and a fall setting to capture selfies and family photographs. This is an outdoor event. Join us for the fun outside on the front gravel area of the Freeman Store.

The Freeman Store has pop-up online sales via a dedicated website. These sales happen about once a month and last for one week with a contact-less pickup on our front porch.
Please watch for an announcement here about our next popup sale date!

We have closed our first Covid-19 Survey Monkey Questionnaire and we would like to thank everyone who participated. It is so important for HVI to accurately capture this point in time for future reflection. Please be on the lookout for a second survey focused on how our community is navigating through this pandemic in the fall. The results from our first survey can be seen at https://www.surveymonkey.com/results/SM-FYYCPXWH7/

Many organizations have released statements about the issues that recent protests addressed. The statement released by The National Trust for Historic Preservation https://savingplaces.org/press-center/media-resources/statement-on-death-of-george-floyd-and-the-aftermath#.XtkBhTpJGUk caught our attention. It said:
We believe that historic preservation can play a critical role in acknowledging and healing the divisions in our nation, by telling the full story of our often-difficult history, by elevating and preserving the enormous and important contributions African Americans have made to our nation, and by carrying that powerful legacy forward through places of truth and reconciliation.
We at Historic Vienna agree with the National Trust’s statement that we can play a critical role in the healing the divisions in our nation. We will continue to preserve all of Vienna’s history and strive to tell the full story.Support HVI
