The gates to the garden at the Lee-Fendall House Museum opened up on Saturday afternoon with the sounds of Bluegrass and the smell of BBQ in the air. The temperatures took a turn to the south as records were set again for early June. Many took shelter in the shade of the trees to enjoy the music. Music came from Bob Perilla’s Big Hillbilly Bluegrass, Dead Men’s Hollow and Herb & Hanson. BBQ was fresh from Dixie Bones in Woodbridge VA. All proceeds from the event benefit the education and preservation initiatives of the Lee-Fendall House. For more information visit <a href=http://www.leefendallhouse.org> www.leefendallhouse.org</a>
