      I wanted to review the new Sargeant museum in Louisa, Virginia. I am a new resident of Louisa County and had been considering working in the museum as a docent. I am an amateur history student.

      One thing when visiting the museum you will be impressed at the amount of detail in the story boards that surround the museum. The museum has four rooms that are divided into different sections according to their historical content.

      The first


      room is dedicated to the first residents of the area Indian tribes. There are many artifacts used by the various tribes that inherited the region.

      These are all under plexiglass for people to observe. The second room deals with the early settlers of the reason.

      A section of the museum is devoted to Patrick Henry who spent his early years in Louisa County. There is a TV screen that has a movie devoted to one of ...


      • Henry’s famous speeches.

        The next room is the Civil War room which is dedicated to Louisa County residents who served in the War between the States. There are replicas of different swords and weapons used by soldiers of that time period.

        There is a roster of soldier’s names who served in the war from the Louisa area. The last room deals with the 20’s and 30’s and famous residents in

        the area.

        One of the first African American legislators came from Louisa County. There are pictures of famous judges from the area,as well as famous and not so famous residents.

        Throughout the museum their are TV’s mounted with stories about the early inhabitants and pictures dot the walls as well as the storyboard. I find this museum to be very interesting and feel that it has something for everyone.

        Vistors are welcome and the museum is open most weekdays and ocassional Saturday’s.
