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

Rating: 5 stars  

I moved to the Eastern Shore of Virginia from San Francisco just 4
years ago. The Society---on whose board I serve---is rapidly
transforming itself to highlight the fascinating written history of this region,
which began when Capt. John Smith landed in 1608 and encountered
the local Native American tribes. Located in the 200-year-old mansion known as
Ker Place, the Historical Society hosts many different events. Our next major
exhibition brings together priceless 17th-19th century maps, Audubon bird prints
and masterpieces of botanical art by Redouté loaned to us by legendary New York
art dealer Graham Arader. We try to surprise the community and visitors, whether it is with
historic objects, contemporary art, crafts, oyster culture, or music.
And everyone is welcome. ----Barnaby Conrad III
