Our Mission

Chartered in 1966, the purpose of the Louisa County Historical Society is to promote the preservation of historical records, collect existing materials, writings and artifacts of life in Louisa County and to make these collections available to the public. Newsletters are published quarterly and members receive our magazine twice a year.

We invite anyone with access to old family records, Bibles, letters, diaries, etc. with information on Louisa County citizens and happenings to please share with the Society for our archives.
