Take a break from shopping and visit the Bath County Historical Society, which is both a museum of local history and a center for genealogy and research.  The building (which was originally the law offices of John Wilson Stephenson) was moved from its original location more than a mile away at the site of the current Warm Springs Inn.  The museum features keepsakes and mementos that date back to even before Bath County was founded in 1790, all tastefully arranged in a series of rooms as they might have appeared in a stately Victorian-era home.  Featured are furniture, clothing, china, crystal, even a little silver.  The walls are decorated with old family portraits, and original artwork.  Other museum rooms feature tools, war and railroad memorabilia, and, of course, los of artifacts relating to the springs and the hotels around them.  Open seasonally from April-October, the Bath County Historical Society provides a vivid look into the past of this charming and historic county.
