As one of the oldest county museums in the state of Virginia, the museum covers over 400 years of local history. Recently remodeled, our expanded exhibits feature a vast array of objects and items not seen together before: fossils and Indian artifacts, 19th Century textiles and clothing, a 1930s country store, agricultural and industrial tools, historical money, toys and medical instruments. The exhibits contain stories of our past, including our African American history, Civil War, Revolutionary War, WWI and WWII eras, and tales of our most famous local resident, Lt. General "Chesty" Puller, the most decorated Marine in corps history. The museum has local history books for sale and resource books for the public's use in the genealogy research center. Open year-round from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm Wednesday – Saturday. Free admission. Donations accepted. Located across the street from Puller Park, the museum is one block from our historic courthouse square.
