Hoover Day

More than 200 people attended the Hoover Day celebration Saturday at Hoover Ridge Park. This was the first recreation of the original Hoover Day since 1994. The celebration commemorates a day in 1929 when President Herbert Hoover visited Madison County after the completion of his rural presidential retreat, Camp Rapidan, in the Shenandoah National Park. Among the attendees at Saturday's event were 5th District U.S. Representative Robert Hurt, 24th District Senator Emmett Hanger Jr. and 30th District Delegate Ed Scott. For more photos from Saturday's event, see the Aug. 21 Madison County Eagle.
