Dr. George Ferguson

getStaticImage-16 - Version 2Last weekend I posted about the Sammons Family Cemetery that is in the proposed path of the Western By-Pass. This small cemetery includes, among others, Dr. George Ferguson, one of the first African American doctors with a practice in Albemarle County. He was photographed in 1915 by Rufus Holsinger in his studio on West Main Street.
