This photo was found at Mont Medi and thought to be the school on Hazel Mountain with Hugh Hite as teacher. C. R. Hite also taught school on Hazel Mountain. The photo came from Lucia Kilby, whose husband descended from the Hites, and was provided by the Rappahannock Historical Society — which, with Piedmont Environmental Council, is co-sponsoring a “Mountain Heritage” open house April 11 at Thornton Gap Primitive Baptist Church in Sperryville. Along with music and audio-video displays, members of the many families whose forebears lived in what is now the park will be on hand to talk, show pictures and more. (For more about the program, visit pecva.org/events, email kkendall@pecva or call 540-347-2334 x 061 to pre-register, a requirement for attendance.)
