SML cemetery relocation subject of lecture

Before Smith Mountain Lake could be built, all 20,000 acres of it, the many small cemeteries and individual graves that lay in that acreage, had to be moved.

On Sunday, Feb. 3, this project will be the subject of the second lecture in this year's Winter Lecture Series at Smith Mountain Lake State Park.

Doug Cooper and Jennifer Thompson of the Bedford Museum and Genealogical Library will tell the story. The lecture will be at the park Discovery Center from 3 to 4 p.m.

The Winter Lecture Series is sponsored by Friends of Smith Mountain Lake State Park.

The third lecture on March 3 will be presented by Dr. Bill Leaning, a retired veterinarian, now nature photographer. Leaning is also a gardener with a passion for attracting birds and wildlife.

On April 7, Ron Coleman, retired historian and Franklin county resident, will tell of "Hunter's Raid and the Failure to Take Lynchburg."

A single ticket to any of the four lectures is $7 at the door, and a season ticket for the series is $18.

All of the Sunday lectures are held from 3 to 4 p.m. pm. at the Discovery Center at Smith Mountain Lake State Park.
