Historical Society to give bees center stage

Must Read

“Bee Day at Ball-Sellers” will celebrate the importance of bees to the ecosystem on Saturday, Oct. 1 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the historic Ball-Sellers House, located at 5620 3rd Street South.

In conjunction with the Arlington Historical Society, local Boy Scout Owen
Yingling led fellow troop members in building an historically accurate “bee skep” as part of his Eagle Scout requirements.

The skep is akin to what the Ball family would have used at their farmhouse in colonial times, and will be dedicated during the event.

The keynote speaker will be “Virginia Honey: A Sweet History” author Virginia Johnson, who will discuss the history of beekeeping in the Old Dominion. In addition, the Northern Virginia Beekeepers Association will provide information, and honey-based beverages and sweet treats will be available. The Ball-Sellers house, the oldest existing home in Arlington, will be open for tours.
