Troop 489's History:

Troop 489 was founded in November 1953.  The troop has been meeting at Neelsville Presbyterian Church the whole time.  At the time the troop was founded only the old white church building existed, so the troop probably met there.  Interestingly, 1953 was also the year that indoor plumbing was added to the old church building and the outhouses were taken out.  The building where we now meet was built in 1965 and the troop most likely started meeting there right away.

-Rusty Hill was our first Eagle Scout, earning the rank in 1975
-As of November 2020, we have a total of 107 Eagle Scouts
-We have been able to identify 10 Scoutmasters since the late 1970s, but there are many gaps so there must have been more
