Apples and milk bottles have rolled into the Waynesboro Heritage Museum to paint a picture of the dairy and orchard boom the city experienced in the 1920’s. The exhibit features milk and apple crates, milk bottles, and photographs from the museum’s archives.

“There were a lot of small dairies and they combined to form Early Dawn [Dairy],” said Shirley Bridgeforth, president of the Waynesboro Heritage Foundation, “There’s a lot of information on those and I have examples of milk bottles from the earlier individual ones.”

Do you support banning chickens in Augusta County's residential neighborhoods?

On Jan. 28, Augusta County Supervisors voted 5-2 to ban chickens from being kept as pets in rural and single family residential areas. Multiple reasons were given for the decision, including preventing the spread of avian flu and less stress for the county's animal control officers.
