The Wingfield Family Society’s 2019 Annual Meeting will be held September 19-22, 2019 at the Augusta Marriott, located off the Riverwalk overlooking the Savannah River in Augusta, Georgia.

One of this year’s highlights will be a full day’s visit and guided tour of Washington, Georgia. This historic city is famous for having more antebellum homes per capita than any other city in the United States. Washington, in Wilkes County, is where a branch of the Wingfield family of Hanover, Virginia migrated to in 1784.  During the full day trip to Washington, members will have an opportunity to visit some of the Wingfield family historic sites.

Washington is one of the South’s best kept secrets. It truly is the epitome of a Southern small town complete with charm, beauty and of course Southern hospitality. We are excited about this year’s Annual Meeting and hope you and your family will join us this year.

2019 is also a WFS election year, as new President and Lord of the Manor, and a slate of four Directors will be elected at the 2019 Annual Meeting.
