The Loudoun Museum’s upcoming pictorial history book titled "The Lure of Loudoun: Centuries of Change in Virginia’s Emerald County" will be published in late spring of 2007 and will coincide with the county’s 250th anniversary. For the first time, the large-format book will cover both text and photographs the history of Loudoun County from its geographical beginnings to its emergence as one of the fastest growing counties in the United States. The book will feature more than 300 black and white and color photographs including some of little known artifacts from the museum’s collection.
Historical content will be mostly based on Charles Poland’s "From Frontier to Suburbia: Loudoun County Virginia, One of America’s Fastest Growing Counties." Poland’s book will be condensed and new material added for the book by former National Geographic staff writer Noel Grove, a resident of Loudoun County for 27 years, currently living near Paris, Va.
