Preservation Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula (PNNMP) was formed in 2012 as an independent charitable organization when Preservation Virginia decided to no longer have separate branches. PNNMP is actively concerned with preserving and protecting the rich historic and cultural heritage of the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula, focusing in particular on Lancaster, Northumberland, Westmoreland, Richmond, King George, and Essex counties. It sponsors regular members’ programs such as a summer speakers series followed by a sociable pot luck supper and tours of historic houses and other historic sites in the area and produces a periodic newsletter. In keeping with its core mission, PNNMP makes grants and undertakes direct projects for historic preservation in the region. It has also published a landmark guide to historic homes and other important sites.
