Mission Statement

To preserve the legacy of Augusta Military Academy

Description

The AMA Museum is located in the Roller ancestral home on the original grounds of the Augusta Military Academy in Fort Defiance, VA. The academy was founded by Professor Charles Roller in 1865, following his service in the Confederate States Army. During its lifetime, AMA was constantly owned and operated by members of the Roller family. AMA closed in 1984. In the 1990s, preservation efforts were initiated to restore the Roller home. By 1999, the building was re-opened to the public as the AMA Alumni House and Museum. The first floor is dedicated to exhibits depicting the institution's history. The alumni organization's offices and meeting rooms are located on the second floor along with storage room that house the museum collection.
