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

Rating: 5 stars  

The Historical Society is headquartered in a beautiful old mansion in the heart of Onancock, Va. Besides the beauty and grandeur of the building and garden setting, (enough on its own!), this organization offers a slew of interesting events that appeal to a wide demographic of the Eastern Shore. It has become ground central for a multitude of events for people to gather. The director, Jenny Barker, has made huge strides in bringing a history center alive for young and old. Off the top of my head, here are just a few events they offer:

free bluegrass concerts on the lawn, history lectures and weekend forums, summer camps for kids, elegant tented dinner parties with must-dance bands, vintage fashion shows, 80s theme Halloween costume parties in an old theater, art festivals, a gorgeous setting for a wedding, wine tastings, and Rug hooking classes.

With that kind of variety and old fashioned FUN, what's not to love?? Kudos to ESVAHS, and Jenny for making it happen.
