A flax hetchel was used to separate the long fibers in the stems of the plant to prepare them for spinning to produce linen. Colonists brought flax seeds with them from Europe. In the 1940's cotton production made flax nearly extinct. Flaxseed is edible and has many uses, including paint, livestock and poultry feed. #LoudounHeritageFarmMuseum #LoudounFarms #LoveLoudoun #LoveLoudounHistory #farmhistory #agriculturehistory #honeybees #LBA #LoudounBeeKeepers #pollinators #reston #restonva #restonvirginia #sterling #sterlingva #sterlingvirginia #ashburn #ashburnVA #ashburnvirginia #ashburnmoms #leesburg #leesburgva #leesburgvirginia #dullesmoms #southriding #southridingva #VirginiaSunshine

The Jenkins Collection was donated by Enos “Vic” Jenkins (1919-2014), who grew up in a farming family in Sterling, Virginia, before moving to Heater’s Island and then Mason Island, where the family kept livestock and grew grain crops. Some of Vic’s earliest memories were of following his grandfather’s plow and plucking up the projectile points that were turned up in the soil. Later in life, Vic’s collection became an educational feature of the annual Lucketts Fair.

We just received a Standard rotary sewing machine and treadle table along with photos from the Stowers family. The items belonged to Mary Hope Worley who passed away this summer. Mary Hope worked in Fairfax Public Schools where she served as Principal for Centerville ES, Layton Hall ES, and Sleepy Hollow ES. The Stowers family owned a 200 acre cattle farm along Evergreen Mills Road, where the Dulles Greenway and Simpson Middle School are located. . #loudounheritagefarmmuseum #loveloudounhistory #loudounfarms #standardsewingmachine #treadlesewingmachine #leesburgva #Leesburg #leesburgvirginia
