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

Rating: 5 stars  

I love this place. I run a B&B in Onancock, Virginia and always recommend my guest go to the museum they operate or take an art class they sponsor. I, myself, have made two handmade Windsor Chairs there. Others have painted floor cloths or hooked rugs...all just as it was crafted in earlier times. How fun is that?

Their blog and facebook pages print lots of fascinating local history.

I particularly like how they involve the whole town. One year we celebrated the book and movie "To kill a Mockingbird." The showed the movie at our local theater. We had local historians give talks on the book and Southern culture of the times. Even the actress who played Scout in the film gave a talk about her experiences.

They serve the Shore and involve every one in their activities. Our area would not be the same without them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More activities (but that takes $)
