Explore The Fauquier Historical Society
When it comes to learning history, it’s important to not only know a bit about world history, but the history of your country, and even the history of your state. Equally important is to learn about the history of the area you live in – your county or your city. After all, there’s plenty of history yet to be discovered. As scientists and historians learn more and more about history, it’s important to stay up-to-date with the current news. As we all know, if we don’t remember historical events, we may be doomed to repeat said events. And often times, history shows dark and terrible moments that do not need to be repeated. If you and your family are interested in learning more about Fauquier, be sure to plan a visit to The Fauquier Historical Society!
About the Historical Society
The Fauquier Historical Society is a heritage experience that focuses on Fauquier County’s rich history. At the society, you’ll find a local museum housed in an 1808 jail. Awarded the “Best Museum” by the Fauquier Times Readers’ Choice Awards in 2018, the Fauquier Historical Society is a great place to visit with your family, in a group, or by yourself.
Aiming to preserve the evidence of the past, the Fauquier Historical Society offers a variety of events that the public can attend. For instance, a new exhibit is called “Everywhere for Everyone: Fauquier’s Red Cross” and details how the Red Cross shaped the county. Beginning June 8, visitors can enjoy the Mysteries of the Mural Walking Tour. To learn more about their upcoming events and to purchase tickets, be sure to take a look on their site.
