Professional Distinction: Demonstrations, Exhibition

Our mission is to preserve and promote the cultural heritage of Mathews County and to provide relevant displays, collections and educational and experiential programs for the public.

We envision that within five years we will complete the interior design of our newly acquired museum at 198 Main Street! Our goal is to collect, preserve and exhibit cultural artifacts that represent the history of the county. Through exhibits and programs, visitors will be able to gain an understanding and appreciation of the county’s past and present and begin to contemplate the future of the county and its people. We will be installing displays on an incremental basis and will be welcoming visitors with hours open to the public as listed on our website at
