Mike Kehoe, Town Administrator of Stephens City, VA, with a few relics
from his extensive Civil War collection.
Although Mike Kehoe has been town administrator at Stephens City, VA, since 1981, his
first contact with Anderson & Associates occurred on a battlefield. Luckily, the
encounter was a peaceful one. A&A was preparing to map the Fishers Hill battlefield at
nearby Strasburg in 1994 and needed help determining the location of Civil War trenches.
Kehoe, who grew up relic hunting on the site, came out to the battlefield to assist.
"Mike proved invaluable in showing us the remaining trenches and cannon pits and
determining the location of trenches destroyed by farming," says A&A Chief
Operations Officer, Chip Worley.
Not only does Kehoe know every inch of
Fishers Hill, he has amassed an impressive collection of Civil War relics, including more
than 200 Civil War belt plates, and can point out at least 10 Civil War sites as he drives
south of Stephens City on Interstate 81. "The interstate passes right through these
sitessome are actually in the medians," he says.
