Southern Fauquier Historical Society, Inc.
Southern Fauquier Historical Society, Inc. is a group of everyday people that joined together for the purpose of documentation, preservation, and education of future generations on the history, culture and growth of Fauquier County and the surrounding areas. Our interest are not limited to one period time, culture or interest. Our purpose is to promote the belief that a community’s history is an integrated fabric of both physical and social elements embracing all social, cultural and ethnic groups woven together through a series of events. The factual presentation of these events without censorship or revisionism is critical to preserving our heritage.
To this purpose we strive to preserve artifacts and develop a document repository for education; continue through public awareness, the documentation, survey, and preservation of existing historical resources; conduct on going educational and workshop programs related to the history of Fauquier County in schools and in other public gatherings; and provide a venue for researchers and genealogist to both research and share their findings with other lay and professional historians.
We hope you will join us.
