Hello world!

26 Jul


Thank you for visiting our brand-spankin’-new blog, y’all!  We are so excited to have the opportunity to share with you some of our collection here at the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society (ACHS).  In this blog, we are going to be highlighting a different piece of & from local history just for you!  In addition to fantastic images of each piece, we will be detailing fun facts and true stories, including the history of the piece, provenance, our time with it, etc.  Admittedly, we’ve stolen this idea from the Library of Virginia‘s fantastic blog, Out of the Box, which you should certainly check out (right now!).

For a bit of compulsory background, the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society was founded in 1940 as a membership organization with the mission to nurture and promote an awareness of local history.  Albemarle County and the City of Charlottesville have been the home to three presidents and Founding Fathers, the University of Virginia, and a number of other wonderful individuals, organizations, and communities whose stories we are so excited to share with you.
