Kentland Community Heritage Festival

Kentland  was the homeplace of  James Randall Kent and his wife Mary Louisa ( Cloyd )Kent. Their daughter Sarah James Kent was the wife of Francis Bell and my Great Great Grandmother.              She and Francis built the home Rockwood here in Dublin Virginia where they could be close to the railhead for shipment of cattle and farm goods to markets in the Big Cities.                                               We today continue their legacy under the name Rockwood Manor  Bed and Breakfast. To show how family names continue on both my Mother and Sister are named Sarah Kent.                                                                                                                                                                                                            Kentland Farm is now owned by Virginia Tech as a experimental farm and is 3200 acres of the best farmland in Virginia.

Rockwood Manor is pleased to see such a great event happen here. Come on down tonight and see them.

Our Thoughts and Prayers go out to the People of Alabama.

After the wonderful visit here by Homer and Linda Hickam and then recently receiving their newsletter with such a glowing description of their visit:  Dear Gentle and Prodigious Readers:

We’ve posted our newsletter on my blog with LOTS of photos and news.
Hope you enjoy it.

Our family here feels such deep concern for them and the People of Alabama who have been so badly hurt in last nights storms. Our own Pulaski town and Draper were hit by tornadoes in one of the recent waves and though we too have experienced the destruction I cannot put in word what it must feel to those who have lost loved ones today.

Pulaski Bikes is now open in the Pulaski Train Station

Mike McMillion and his bike shop are now posed at the entrance to the Dora Trail in the now reconstructed Historic
Pulaski Train Station. It was so good to hear of a bike trail like the Dora and New River now having ties to a local bike shop.
