  • Petersburg Preservation
    Preservation Petersburg works hard to maintain Petersburg's past. The society hosts events and programs to recount the city's formative events and explore its iconic buildings, whose?eclectic mix of architecture?styles were featured in Steven Spielberg's Academy Award?winning historical drama, Lincoln. Historic Sites and Sights Peter Jones Trading Station: Although it's now a handful of freestanding stone walls and a chimney, this oft-reconstructed building began as one of the original structures in the Fort Henry trading complex. Siege Museum: The Exchange Building?a registered national historic landmark?currently houses a museum documenting the lives of Petersburg citizens during the Civil War. South Side Depot: Originally built around 1854, this depot is the oldest railroad station in Virginia. Centre Hill Mansion: Three US presidents?John Tyler, William Howard Taft, and Abraham Lincoln?visited this stately home overlooking the Appomattox River. Blandford Cemetery: With marked gravestones dating as far back as 1702, the cemetery serves as the final resting place for a British general from the American Revolution, three Civil War generals, and two Virginia governors, among others.

  • Edgar Allan Poe Museum
    Edgar Allan Poe holds a distinguished reputation in American literature, given his proclivity for dark work, such as “The Raven” and “The Tell-Tale Heart.” But the Poe of legend is often at odds with the real Poe: the student who had to gamble and burn his furniture to make it through college; the career man who traveled extensively to find better opportunities; and the devoted husband who never recovered from the death of his wife. He even enrolled at West Point … though he was thrown out eight months later. The Poe Museum educates guests on the writer's life, helping them reconcile the reputed Poe with the real Poe. Located within the Old Stone House that lies just blocks from Poe's first Richmond home and his first employer, the Southern Literary Messenger, the museum showcases exhibits and significant artifacts, such as Poe's walking stick, his boyhood bed, and even a lock of his hair. This collection reveals his journey, showing what drove him to become a master writer of short stories, lyric poetry, action-movie screenplays, and, of course, horror stories.

  • The Museum of the Confederacy
    The White House of the Confederacy constituted the social, political, and military headquarters of Confederate States of America President Jefferson Davis during the Civil War. Later named a National Historic Landmark, the building still stands today. Daily guided tours lead guests through the grand 19th-century structure, which houses more than half its original wartime furnishings. The White House is only steps away from The Museum of the Confederacy's Richmond location, where a core exhibit chronicles the Confederacy from its beginnings to General Robert E. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox. Opened 25 years after that fateful event, the nonprofit museum displays artifacts from a collection of more than 15,000 items. They include Stonewall Jackson's sword, a letter from Pope Pius IX, and all the pennies Jefferson Davis etched his face onto in his spare time. Meanwhile, another 400 artifacts adorn the permanent exhibit at the museum's Appomattox location. Here, a dozen audiovisual stations, parole lists, and the uniform coat worn by Lee illustrate the event that brought the Civil War to a close.

  • Virginia Historical Society
    Founded in 1831, the same year chief justice John Marshall became its first president and former president James Madison its first honorary member, the Virginia Historical Society began amassing books, manuscripts, and historical objects to preserve the state's past. After moving its collections throughout the state during the Civil War, the society finally settled into the Lee House—the wartime home of General Robert E. Lee's family—in 1893 before moving to the Center of Virginia History in 1959. The society showcases the state's heritage through long-term and temporary exhibitions such as The Story of Virginia, an American Experience, which contains artifacts from 16,000 years of Virginian history (from prehistory to the present) displayed in 10,000 square feet of galleries. Outside of its museum walls, Virginia Historical Society enlightens the public with educational programs and resources, publications, and rare nickels that caught Thomas Jefferson with his eyes closed.
