Reedville Fishermen's Museum

The Reedville Fishermen's Museum, an affiliate member of the Council of American Maritime Museums, is dedicated to preserving the heritage of the maritime history of the lower Chesapeake Bay area and the watermen who have plied their trade here for hundreds of years, and the menhaden industry that has existed in Reedville for over a century. This is accomplished by acquiring, documenting and displaying materials that are historically important to the area's fisheries and the lives of the watermen, and to further educational programs to interpret this maritime heritage.

Two of the Museum's vessels, the skipjack Claud W. Somers and the deck boat Elva C. are in the National Register of Historic Places. This action speaks to the vital role that our local heritage – the heritage we work so hard to preserve – plays in this nation's history.

Lee, who was born at Stratford in 1807.

Set on 1,900 acres on the Potomac River in Westmoreland County, Stratford Hall today offers year round educational programs for both teachers and students. These programs include teacher symposiums, student field trips tailored to the Standards of Learning, special events, and a summer camp program rich in history.

The Poe Museum provides a retreat into early nineteenth century Richmond where Poe lived and worked. The museum features the life and career of Edgar Allan Poe by documenting his accomplishments with pictures, relics, and verse, and focusing on his many years in Richmond.

Frontier Culture Museum

The Frontier Culture Museum tells the story of the thousands of people who migrated to colonial America, and of the life they created here for themselves and their descendents. Many were farmers and rural craftsmen set in motion by changing conditions in their homelands, and drawn to the American colonies by opportunities for a better life.

To tell the story of these early immigrants and their American descendents, the Museum has moved or reproduced examples of traditional rural buildings from England, Germany, Ireland, West Africa, and America. The Museum engages the public at these exhibits with a combination of interpretive signage and living history demonstrations. The outdoor exhibits are located in two separate areas: the Old World and America. The Old World exhibits show rural life and culture in four homelands of early migrants to the American colonies.
