The Heritage Museum
With a vast collection of artifacts and archives, The Heritage Museum seeks to preserve and share the history of the Shenandoah Valley. Here, you can peruse displays that trace this history back prehistory, Native American settlement, and early American history. Local residents and visiting researchers can even chart their genealogy with help from a researcher at the museum's library.
The Building: The 14,000-square-foot building's exterior was built to look like a 19th-century farmstead.
Eye Catcher: The electric map that traces Stonewall Jackson's Valley Campaign in 1862 was first created by local department store employees for the Centennial Commission in 1962, making it an artifact itself. It was shown in downtown Harrisburg for decades.
Permanent Mainstay: In Invincible Spirit: History in the Heart of the Shenandoah, guests go back in time as they examine Native American artifacts, explore a replica of a 19th-century potter's kiln, and read stories about the Civil War's impact on local residents.
Past Exhibit: Civil War Letters displayed a trove of letters and Confederate cash found during the restoration of an historic home. The letters, written in 1863 and 1864, tell tales of struggle, battle, and romance. They are now part of the museum's archives.
While You’re in the Neighborhood: Next door to the museum is the historic Cromer-Trumbo House, built in the early 1800s. It holds period pieces such as household items, toys, and decor. The Silver Lake Mill and Fort Harrison are also located within walking distance.
