Want to learn more about a quilt?   If you have a family quilt or found a quilt in the attic or at the flea market, bring it to the Virginia Quilt Museum to learn more about it.   Museum Curator, Gloria Comstock, will examine and date up to three quilts per person.  The fee supports the museum and it's work conserving the 300 made in Virginia quilts in it's collection.    In addition to learning about your quilt, tour the museum.   Exhibits through out the Civil War home housing the museum include modern, traditional, bed size, wall hanging and Civil War quilts.

The architecture and history of the 1856 house reflects the history of the Shenandoah Valley.   Used as a hospital during the Civil War, the ghost of a young Confederate officer is believed to still walk the halls.
