BLOWING ROCK – The long-anticipated dedication of Ginny Stevens Lane, formerly Chestnut Street, is set to take place Sunday, June 16, at 4 p.m. on the lawn of Edgewood Cottage.
The dedication is organized by the Friends of Ginny Stevens Committee. According to committee member Marcia Quinn, Ginny’s husband Dave, daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter will be in attendance.
A reception will follow at the Rumple Memorial Presbyterian Church’s fellowship hall.
The dedicated ceremony was originally scheduled for September 2018, but it was postponed due to the remnants of Hurricane Florence going through the region.
Virginia “Ginny” Stevens died on Dec. 6, 2017, at the age of 82. Stevens played a vital role in preserving historical Blowing Rock sites, such as Edgewood Cottage, while serving on the Blowing Rock Historical Society as president and co-founder. Stevens won many awards for her contributions to the town, such as the 2011 Woman of the Year Award for the High Country and 2001 Blowing Rock Woman of the Year.
