On Sunday, Jan. 21, the historic Graffiti house
gained regional attention when it was featured on Washington D.C.'s
Fox 5 News Station during its 10 p.m. broadcast. Reporter Patty
Culhane visited the house earlier that day along with a camera crew
and shot footage of the aging structure. Fox 5 received word that
the artwork on the walls of the Graffiti House was slowly crumbling
to the ground after reading The Culpeper Times' article on
the house earlier in January.
Della Edrington, volunteer coordinator for the Brandy
Station Foundation, and Bob Luddy, President of the Brandy Station
Foundation were both featured during the segment.
The Brandy Station Foundation is a local non-profit
organization which protects the Brandy Station area of Culpeper,
including the historic battlefield and its surroundings. The
Graffiti House currently serves as the foundation's visitorís
"It is so great how this story has spread," said
Edrington. "The house needs all the recognition it can receive."
Edrington commented that the Fox 5 crew recorded at the house for a
little over 40 minutes, but cut down the segment featured to about
two minutes. "We were very pleased with how it turned out," said
Although the report on the historic treasure has
already been shown, those interested can watch the segment on
Fox 5's website.
