Anniversary Cake

PNNMP REaches milestone!

Preservation Northern Neck & Middle Peninsula is pleased to announce its ten-year mark as an organization dedicated to the furtherance of historic preservation in Virginia’s Northern Neck and Essex County. The all-volunteer, nonprofit charitable corporation was organized in 2012 but had been doing good works long before that as a branch of APVA/Preservation Virginia. It is particularly unique in its grant program which has awarded $48,146.00 to institutions and individuals to assist them in maintaining the treasures of the past. Grants are made annually to individuals and organizations for all aspects of building preservation and restoration and document, fabric and art conservation. This program expanded with recent generous support from Mason and Lula Cole Charitable Trust.

Stay Informed

We had a full and exciting program of speakers and tours last year, including a most useful workshop on “Preserving, Storing and Displaying Important Papers: Documents, Prints and Maps” by conservators Mary Studt and  Wendy Cowan, and a full lineup of speakers and tours as listed below. Unfortunately, given the current public health crisis, we have had to put this year’s program on “pause” for the time being.

In the meantime, though, we’ve launched an exciting new project -our electronic newsletter “Post and Beam.”   You can read the current issue here and sign up to receive future issues here.

We also are continuing our important grant program to help preserve the important historic resources of the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula – one of the first settled areas in Virginia where George Washington was born.
