(example: oral histories, map projects, research) 

*Do you have a project in mind?  (example: African-American Chesterfield history)
*Do you know what form that project will take, or do you need to brainstorm it with someone?
*What spare time do you have?  A few hours?  A full day?  Special events only?
* Are you ready to make a commitment, or do you prefer a more informal arrangement?
*Do you enjoy working with the public?

Historic Magnolia Grange Museum Home Restoration Efforts


 Homeowners are well aware that without dedicated maintenance and care, a home can quickly fall into disrepair.  Our museum home needs some dedicated care.  That is why the Chesterfield Historical Society of Virginia launched a Spring event to help raise funds to restore this grand plantation home museum.  Our events proceeds go to support this restoration effort.  You can help.  Even if you do not play in our Golf Classic, you can donate to this worthy cause.  We want, with your generous help, for our grand manor to be the showplace of Chesterfield County.  Please give generously so the repairs can be made.  Visit Magnolia Grange and take the tour.  We are a County rich in history.
