The Loudoun/Douglass Alumni Association, a 501(C)3 organization, was formed in 1985. The Association was formed primarily to raise funds for scholarships to award descendents of those who attended Loudoun Training and/or Douglass High School.  Over $100,000 has been awarded in scholarships to date.  In 1993, Douglass High School was inducted into the State and National Registers as a historic landmark.  A plaque designed by Board Member Reginald Simms, class of 1955, is located on the cornerstone of the building to commemorate this event. The Association currently awards eight $1,000 scholarship awards, including the Elijah Corum Scholarship, but this amount could change, depending on our available funds.  The board holds the following fundraisers; dances, yard sales, golf tournaments, car shows, bike shows, and offers the Giving Club for members to join.  In July of each year, the Association sponsors the Scholarship Awards ceremony and honors those graduates who are celebrating their 50th reunion.

The Heritage Farm Museum is dedicated to preserving, promoting, and bringing to life the history of farming and the rich agricultural heritage of Loudoun County. At the Heritage Farm Museum, you can meet Milkie the Cow, travel back in time to the Waxpool General Store and be a farmer for a day.

The Museum specializes in hands-on classes and programs that meet the Standards of Learning for Virginia schools. The Gift Shop features Virginia’s Finest label products and creative gifts for home and family. The Museum is conveniently located off Route 28 and Route 7 in Claude Moore Park, Sterling, Virginia.
