Lecture at the Mimosa Barn: Ensign Savage

Lecture at the Mimosa Barn:  Ensign Savage


The Northampton Historic Preservation Society is pleased to present a special "Lecture at the Mimosa Barn" on Sunday, July 14th at 2:00 p.m. David Scott will discuss one of Northampton County's most interesting and popular early settlers, Ensign Savage.
Come and hear the story of this important individual who lived with the Native Americans near Jamestown in the early years of the Virginia Colony. Why was he called “Ensign”? When did he come to the Eastern Shore and how did “Savage Neck” get its name? Who was his wife, and was she one of the earliest women to receive a patent for her own land in America? These questions and more will be discussed.
No fees are charged for this lecture, but we ask that individuals each consider a $10 donation to support ongoing NHPS preservation and education efforts. Be sure to bring your lawn chair and dress comfortably! For weather related announcements and direc- tions to the Mimosa Barn, go to the home page on the NHPS website.
