Our role is educational, primarily–we want to help you understand this region’s past through records, photos, artifacts, the historical landscape we’ve inherited, and by stories. We are a mix of experts and enthusiasts, and many who are new to the area and just curious to find out about where they live! Between early German settlement, our years as an agricultural breadbasket, the divisive Civil War (this region was caught in the middle), the Potomac River, the B&O Railroad, C&O Canal, and one of the better-preserved landscapes in the country including miles of original roads–we have many stories top share with you, young and old, longtime resident or just arrived! We approach our history mission through:

  • A monthly history lecture series which meets 2nd Sundays (see lecture announcements for details) –brings speakers on regional history together with an audience. Meet local experts! Meet your neighbors!

  • An informative monthly e-newsletter full of upcoming history events, historical society news and programs, stories, photos, artifacts, history questions, and more.

  • Our website full of stories, newspaper clipping and photos from the past, upcoming events, and an archive of both past newsletters and filmed lectures to view.

  • Offering field trips exploring the backroads, structures, cemeteries, and streetscapes of our region.

  • Holding special events to share history and bring us together. Let old and new meet!

  • Our museum next to thew Lovettsville Town Office on Pennsylvania Avenue is chock full of artifacts, photos, maps, archives, genealogy, and stories of the region with an expert on hand. Come have a visit, introduce yourself, then may we suggest one of the 9 restaurants within walking distance after!

However, we cannot do these things alone! We need your help. We are a 501c(3) non-profit membership-dependent organization serving the community. Please consider becoming a member today so that the Lovettsville Historical Society & Museum can continue providing this service to the community for years to come.
