The Fauquier Historical Society
Following guidelines from the Governor and the State of Virginia, the museum will be closed temporarily. Please continue to follow us through Facebook and Instagram.
We aim to stimulate interest in Fauquier County and Virginia history by preserving the evidence of our past, connecting it to our present and educating the community about its importance to our future.
