About Museum of Culpeper History

Location:

113 S COMMERCE ST, CULPEPER, VA 22701, US

Mission Statement

The Museum is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that collects, preserves, interprets, and promotes the history of Culpeper from the Triassic Period 215 Million years ago to present-day Culpeper, by engaging diverse audiences and education visitors using our collection of objects and photographs in exhibits and programs, and to create an increased understanding of the significant historical events that occurred locally and formed the community we know today.

Description

The Museum was established in 1975 by a dedicated group of volunteers and incorporated as 'The Culpeper Cavalry Museum, Inc.' in 1977 when it first opened its doors. Originally the Museum was located at 102 N. Main Street in the A. P. Hill Building. Prior to locating to the historic train depot at 113 S. Commerce Street in 2014 the Museum has also been located on W. Davis Street, E. Davis Street, and S. Main Street for varying periods of time. Due to the Museum's growing collection and the desire to showcase all aspects of Culpeper's history the public name of the organization changed in 1993 to reflect this new direction, and hence the Museum of Culpeper History was born.
