Video History

The Museum has on DVD over 60 video histories of county senior citizens relating their experiences in the early-to-mid-1900s in King and Queen County. Each person interviewed provides family, education, and occupation background, sometimes including childhood and family anecdotes and pictures. In addition, they share their knowledge of various subjects: Church, Civil Rights, the Civil War, World War II (WWII), the Great Depression, Health, School, Recreational Activities, Holidays, Teaching, Transportation, Volunteering and many others. There are also video histories about county schools, both black and white, and the experiences of the local Native Americans of The Mattaponi and Rappahannock Indian Tribes. These DVDs may be viewed in the Museum Library or purchased online or at the Museum.
