Thanks to generous donations and years of collecting the Suffolk-Nansemond Historical Society has amassed a wonderful array of archival materials and objects relating to the histories of Suffolk and Nansemond counties. We are currently in the process of cataloging and organizing the collection both for our own purposes and to enhance accessibility to the public. This is a huge undertaking and we always welcome volunteers who are interested in learning more about history, museum practices, or simply want to get out of the house! No matter what your area of interest or expertise there is a place for you here. Visit our volunteer page to find out more about how you can help!
Interested in doing research? Many of our collection pieces are available upon request and appointments are encouraged to ensure someone is available to assist you with your search. Please visit our contact page for more information and to set up your appointment.
