The Franklin County Historical Society was chartered by the Commonwealth of Virginia in 1968 for the stated purpose of collecting and preserving the history of Franklin County, Virginia. To that end, we offer memberships to the general public to encourage interest in local history. We operate a history museum and research library to provide public access to our collected materials. We publish booklets with historical themes for the purpose of education and research assistance. We are happy to share our resources with those who are interested - and welcome the sharing of resources by others.
