The Bedford County Historical Society, Committee for Historian of the Year selected Jeffery Whetstone, of Everett for 2022. Over the years, he has offered Guide Tours to highlight historic locations in and around Everett, shared his knowledge of local artifacts and was a resource for those seeking knowledge of Bedford County history.

In 2004, he co-authored the book `From Winchester to Bloody Run` along with Steve Hollingshead, an invaluable resource of local Civil War history.
