The Jones Family lived and worked in Central Virginia during the 1800s. Their home was on what is now Holliday Lake State Park. Of course there was no lake here then, just a small creek where they panned for gold. The online magazine “The Virginia Reel” recently spent some time speaking with Mrs. Caroline Jones. You can watch a part of the interview below.
“Bringing the Jones Family Back to Life” is an interpretiveprogram offered at Holliday Lake State Park at least two times each summer. Children attending this program have the opportunity to dress up in 1800s styleclothes and get to play with toys similar to what the Jones children would have had. Program dates for the 2011 season will be finalized in the spring.
