In July, the Avoca Museum in Altavista is set to open its newest exhibit on the property, paying tribute to the passion of one of its former residents for Native American artifacts.

“Points in Time: A History of Campbell County’s Original Inhabitants” will have on display more than 2,000 projectile points (often referred to as arrowheads or spearheads), most of which were found and maintained by Juliet Fauntleroy, a member of the first family to live in the circa 1901 house.

The new exhibit was made possible in part by a grant from the The Helen S. & Charles G. Patterson Foundation, a Virginia charity that aims to help fund museums.
