The Heritage Center is a comprehensive program that 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 Heritage Center provides the public with access to documents, recordings, and images in physical, digital, and other formats. 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 Heritage Center and in other Eastern Shore locations.
