The Story of Virginia

Our Strategic Plan

For nearly two centuries, the Virginia Historical Society has worked diligently to preserve and share the remarkable story of Virginia. We have accomplished much, but our work is far from complete. Time has changed our community and our commonwealth, and so we must also adapt and evolve.

We are ready to do more and be more for the people of Virginia and beyond – to engage new audiences in new ways; to reach across the entire commonwealth; to grow and care for our collection; and to improve our financial sustainability.

Taking guidance from our members, community, staff, and trustees, we have formed a thoughtful new strategic plan that charts a new path toward a more vibrant future for this exceptionally worthy institution. We hope that you will take time to explore this ambitious plan detailed in the pages below and be compelled to join us on this exciting journey.
