PURCELLVILLE, Va., April 18, 2023 — Join the Town of Purcellville on Saturday, April 22 at 10:00 a.m. for a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new information kiosk that has been installed next to the Purcellville Train Station at 200 N. 21st Street. The gathering will be held outside at the kiosk.
The kiosk, funded through a grant from Loudoun County’s Tourism Grant Program, was the work of the Train Station Advisory Board (TSAB), an all-volunteer board working to strengthen our community through historic preservation and collaboration. The TSAB sought and received help and expertise from Makersmiths of Purcellville which carefully planned and built the structure to the board’s specifications, then assisted Town staff during the kiosk installation. The panels were expertly crafted by Quail Run Signs and designed to be easily exchanged when updates are made. The TSAB originally conceived of the project after a visit to Manassas, Va. Information on the panels came from a collaboration among Town staff, NOVA Parks, and the TSAB. Together they designed the kiosk to promote Purcellville’s events, historic spaces, and businesses.
