There is nothing unique about designing, building and decorating the average doll house when there are patterns and furniture out there for the hobbyist to use. But what if you were a different doll house designer, one that built everything yourself and all from shoe and cereal boxes?

June Wiehe explained how she created her unique doll house and how meaningful the process was while caring for her elderly mother. The year was 1992, Wiehe was 68 and a docent at Palmyra’s Old Stone Jail Museum when a group of volunteers decided to do a display of dollhouses for the following year. Wiehe volunteered to do a shoe box doll house even though she admitted she had no idea how she was going to accomplish the task.

The Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors gave the go ahead to Fluvanna’s first brewery on Wednesday night (May 18).

Antioch Brewing Company, owned by Raymond and Chrystan Bunch, has gotten rave reviews for its beer, said brewery representative Alan Crummette, but so far has been giving it away for free.

“We aren’t legal yet,” said Crummette. “And that’s why we want to hurry up and get this rolling so that we can start recovering our losses and growing our business.”

Located by the Bunch’s home on Branch Road in the Cunningham area, Antioch Brewing Company already has a line–up of different flavors to get started on. Right now the company grows its own hops to supplement those it buys and is looking to purchase other needed grains as locally as possible.
