We bring history to life by striving to engage the public with a deeper understanding of the past and to inspire action to promote a better future.
We are committed to being trusted stewards of historical resources in our care.
We embrace partnerships and we understand that financial stability is the key to our sustainability.
We value all gifts: from volunteers’ time to member support, community partnerships, and individual, business, and corporate donations.
The Louisa County Historical Society is located in the town of Louisa in Central Virginia within driving distance of Charlottesville, Richmond, and Fredericksburg.
