As you’ve seen, PHW is taking a look back at our past fifty years as an organization. Thank you to all those trailblazing preservationists who went before us and to everyone who continues to be fascinated with historic buildings and the story of Winchester, Virginia. We could not have reached this major milestone without your support!
As we are a grassroots organization, much of our historical memory is held by the individuals who have volunteered or worked for the organization. We’d like your help in documenting that portion of our past before it is forever lost. Here’s how you can help:
- Share your personal recollections of PHW events, activities, or projects from any point in our history
- Donate or loan for copying any items and/or photographs with a PHW connection. We are particularly interested in documenting PHW’s early years (1964-1976), past scripts for Holiday House Tour docents, and any images and histories of structures in Winchester
- Assist PHW in identifying unlabelled photographs in our collection
- Can you think of some other way you can assist us? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org or (540) 667-3577.
