Saturday, April 14, 11:00am - 3:00pm - Shenandoah County Heritage Days

Charterhouse School, 508 Piccadilly St, Edinburg, Va. presented by The Shenandoah County Historical Society.
This year's theme is World War II. There is ample space available at the school and invite all who are interested in exhibiting memorabilia from WWII to request table space. We expect to see uniforms, letters, medals, photographs, family information and other items. We also would enjoy having WWII items from the home front to share. They might include war bonds, newspaper articles, ration stamps, letters, diaries, household items from the 1930s/40s, quilts, photographs and more. While WWII is the primary focus this year we encourage anyone who would like to exhibit their family history, history of houses or other buildings, farms, businesses, church or cemetery history, or any local history to bring their material to share. The Virginia Profiles of Honor Tour vehicle will be with us again, as it was last year.
Heritage Day is being hosted by SCHS, Shenandoah County Archives and Shenandoah County Tourism. This joint effort is intended to bring attention to the commemoration of WWII while adding to our knowledge of the era. Information may be scanned and included in the archives of the Shenandoah County Library and/or the Library of Virginia for future generations.
Anyone who would like to participate with an exhibit, or who would like to help prepare an exhibit, are asked to call us at 459-1795 or by email at There is no fee for exhibiting or requesting a table.
