Virginia Historical Society

At its first organizational meeting in 1831, the Virginia Historical Society elected Chief Justice John Marshall as its first president, and from this auspicious beginning the Society has grown by leaps and bounds in its efforts to collect and document the history of the "Old Dominion." While visitors to the site will enjoy learning about the various outreach programs of the Society and its fine in situ exhibits and research materials, those visiting the website itself will find a number of fine online exhibits. One of the real finds here is "The Story of Virginia: An American Experience," which offers a broad and inclusive perspective on the state's history and development. Complemented by a number of primary documents (such as archival photographs and maps), each short essay is well-written and concise.
