The Story of Virginia Campaign is designed to help the VHS refresh portions of our existing facility and to maximize the existing footprint of the building. This will allow us to display more of our collections as well as host more and larger special events and lectures. The Story of Virginia Campaign will open our facility, our collections, and our expertise to an even wider audience. The goal, however, remains the same: to collect, preserve, and interpret Virginia’s past for future generations. Construction has begun and should be completed by fall of 2015.

The VHS ranks among the top tier of history organizations in the country. The early, and strong, response to this campaign is a reflection of the important contributions made by Virginians to American, and world, history.

Three elements to the campaign
The ideas, accomplishments and struggles of Virginians have shaped both American and world history. The Story of Virginia Campaign is about connecting people to the American past through those stories of Virginians.
