Review for Eastern Shore of VA Historical Society, Onancock, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 2012 The Eastern Shore of Virginia Historical Society adopted a strategic plan to address the many challenges they, like many other small museums, faced in continuing viability and sustainability. A energetic, dedicated, and innovative Executive Director has worked tirelessly with dedicated and supportive staff and volunteers to achieve goals set by the plan. Among the many accomplishments have been establishing educational outreach programs and creating well received events and exhibits such as Ride the Tide and Godspeed Festival, Farm Life exhibit, Festival of the Arts, History Lectures, and Music on the Lawn Concerts. In 2102 events and exhibits attracted over 3,000 visitors, in 2013 over 5,000, and 2014 is equally promising. Membership has increased 21%.

Review for Eastern Shore of VA Historical Society, Onancock, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am especially pleased to write a review on the Eastern Shore of Virginia Historical Society. Their mission statement defines its purpose in one simple sentence: To preserve and interpret Eastern Shore history and to educate the community about its past. My assessment is they are doing this well. Board of Directors, Executive Director, staff, and many volunteers have worked as a team to be faithful to the mission with programs and events. To preserve our history they have established a new room to house their collections and to better serve those who come to research. To interpret and educate they have established lecture series and educational programs for members of the community of all ages.
