Read, Watch, Listen

The VHS began recording the Banner Lecture series in 2007.

Read, Watch, Listen is your one-stop shop for all VHS productions. We have audio and video from authors and historians who have spoken during the Banner Lecture series, staff produced content that explores artifacts or themes in Virginia history, and even an animated video series for students.

Learn about the society's quarterly journal, the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, and its newsletter, VHS Members Newsletter. You will also want to read our VHS blog, where staff members write about their daily activities, recent accessions to the collections, or special events.

Explore lectures, gallery tours, and stories about artifacts in the collection.
