A look back at 2019

In this Feb. 2 archived photo, Appomattox firefighters extinguish a barn fire at the Appomattox FFA Alumni Land Laboratory, located next to the Appomattox County High School. The fire killed animals and destroyed the main barn and surrounding barn lot. Some of the livestock lost in the fire belonged to the Appomattox FFA Alumni Association while others belonged to individual FFA students. With community support, the barn was rebuilt later in the year. See the current issue of the Times Virginian newspaper for a look back at all the top stories of 2019.
