Ambassador Alexander and Virginia Weddell were steadfast supporters of the Virginia Historical Society for many years. In addition to giving generously to the museum during their lifetime, they bequeathed their beautiful home, Virginia House, and an endowment -- both which continue to benefit the museum to this day. Learn more about the Weddells and Virginia House.

*Donors whose annual gifts total $1000 or more are recognized as members of the 1831 Society (our founding year).

**Members of the Weddell Society have generously included the museum in their estate plans.
