Folks with The Oak Ridge Fox Hunt Club got together this past weekend for a mystery event to support the hounds. “Inspector”, Kathy Johnson was on hand to help solve the mystery in the skit held Saturday night at The Rockfish Valley Volunteer Fire Department.

It was a packed house Saturday night for the event.

The Oak Ridge Fox Hunt Club was founded in 1887 in Lynchburg and transferred to the Oak Ridge Estate in 1910. The group was a nationally recognized hunt in Nelson County for three years, although more informal fox hunting occurred throughout Thomas Fortune Ryan’s ownership. Ryan himself was an avid hunter. The Bedford Hunt was established as the institutional successor after World War I. In 1993, Dr. Rita Mae Brown, Master of Fox Hounds, re-instituted the Fox Hunt at Oak Ridge, according to ORFC’s website.
