In 2007, the Clarke County Historical Association began planning a new and exciting museum experience for visitors to our headquarters in Berryville. On November 19, 2009, under the leadership of our late CCHA president Roger Chavez, that vision became a reality.

Artifacts on display in the museum’s three rooms include the money chest from Lord Fairfax’s Greenway Court land office, a pistol carried by a member of Company D, 6th Virginia Cavalry (the “Clarke Cavalry”), a Chinese ceramic punch basin that once belonged to Nathaniel Burwell, racing silks from Audley Farm, and a former slave’s corn-cutting knife from a home in Josephine City.

Two of the rooms also feature films that combine historical photographs, contemporary footage, and the art of noted illustrator Richard Schlecht to tell a panoramic story of the pre- and early history of Clarke County and of the county's continuing efforts to preserve a unique and special way of life.
