MILLBORO SPRINGS, Va. (AP) - Officials in Virginia are dedicating a state historical marker that commemorates the 1927 founding of Bath County’s Camp Mont Shenandoah, which is among Virginia’s oldest independent residential girls’ camps.

Friday’s dedication ceremony will be at the marker’s location at the front entrance of the camp, which is along Route 42 near Millboro Springs. U.S. Senator Mark Warner, a Democrat, is among those scheduled to speak.

Virginia officials say the all-girls camp was listed on the Virginia Landmarks Register in 2014 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2015.
