Founded in 1831, the Virginia Historical Society is the oldest such institution in the South. It was located in the Stewart-Lee house in downtown Richmond until 1959, when it moved to its present quarters in Battle Abbey. The Society's extensive collections of Virginiana-manuscripts, rare books, portraits, photographs, and museum objects-form the basis for a research library and museum, as well as publications, lectures, and other public education programs.
