Albemarle Historical Society

Becoming an Historical Society Member

Please help us preserve local history by becoming a supporting member of the Society. You can purchase supporting memberships securely on-line by selecting the membership level from the drop-down menu below.


We urge you to consider becoming a supporting member of the Society, thereby adding your voice to our efforts to convey the story of this community and the people who lived here to future generations. The Society receives no on-going operational support from local, state, or federal governments. The Society is extremely grateful to local foundations and the City of Charlottesville for providing targeted project grants over the years. Community businesses have also provided much needed support of specific projects and programs.


"The Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society is a non-profit organization relying entirely on the generosity of supporters---your family, friends and neighbors--to preserve, promote, and celebrate the history of our community."

Become a Supporting Member


You are cordially invited to become a supporting member of the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society.

Supporting members will receive a copy of the annual Magazine of Albemarle County History, and discounts on publications for sale in our Society Store. Most importantly, Society members have the satisfaction of knowing that they share in the stewardship of our collective local memory.

Annual supporting memberships are valid for one calendar year. Renewal notices are distributed in the last quarter of the year. You are encouraged to renew early to avoid missing Society mailings or notices in the new year. Of your dues, all but $15.00 (the value of the Magazine), and any additional donation over that amount, is tax deductible to the full extent provided by law.

Because we believe that the Society can do so much to enrich the lives of people who are associated with the Albemarle and Charlottesville community, we have tried to make our supporting membership as affordable as possible:
