Our Work

The Heritage Center is a comprehensive program to collects, preserves, and makes available to the public documents, images and rare published materials that record the rich and complex history of Accomack and Northampton Counties.  The Center provides equipment the public needs to access documents, recordings, and images in digital and older formats.  Equipment is available to reproduce, store, and print these recorded histories.  Staff are available to train and demonstrate the public in family record preservation, organization, and duplication in order to share their history to future generations.  Oral history recording is taught and promoted.  Programs are created to generate public interest in local history and genealogy within the national context.  Traveling exhibits and self-curated exhibits are displayed within the Center and in other Eastern Shore locations.
