Note from Our Director

January 2021

Dear Friends,

Our region is experiencing a dramatic surge in COVID-19 cases. With this in mind and the well-being of our visitors and staff of primary importance, the Museum will be closed to the public during the month of January. We will reopen on February 1. This decision is made with reluctance but knowing that better times are coming.

Museum staff will use January to make upgrades to our online programming capacity, utilizing new technology equipment made possible by the Virginia Tobacco Commission, USDA Rural Development, and the Go Virginia Foundation. We will look forward to welcoming our guests back on February 1.

Everyone stay safe and healthy!

Betsy K. White, Director.
