Fluvanna’s Fourth of July festivities have come a long way in the last sixty years. When local realtor Adele Schaefer moved to Fluvanna in 1950 from Ridgewood, New Jersey, her father was disappointed in the rural area’s lack of celebratory activities.
“Ridgewood celebrated the Fourth of July in a major, major big way,” said Schaefer. “When we got down here to our farm in Bybee, the Fourth of July was practically nonexistent. There was nothing. The only thing – if they did anything – was to go fishing.”Add a comment
