About the event
Welcome to the Virginia Piedmont Heritage Area.
The Association was founded in 1995 as a historic preservation organization in response to a threat of development of a large tract of land near the Manassas National Battlefield Park. Since that time, we have grown into one of the region’s strongest voices for preservation of our unique history.
VPHAA’s mission is to educate and advocate for the preservation of the extraordinary historic landscape and culture of the Virginia Piedmont Heritage Area for future generations.
The Area includes all or parts of five counties in the northern Virginia Piedmont and lower Shenandoah Valley: Loudoun, Fauquier, Clarke, Prince William, and Warren Counties.
OUR WORK: PRESERVATION THROUGH EDUCATION
By telling our stories, we hope to inspire people to care for and protect our outstanding historical resources.
We have been telling our stories in local schools to children and in public programming for adults since 2005. Last year was a banner year for VPHA as we reached over 5,000 students and adults through our public programs.
We tell the stories of all eras and people who lived here. Our programs include presentations on Native Americans, the Revolutionary War, second son Tidewater Planters, the Early Republic, Quaker and German settlers, the Civil War, enslaved and free African Americans, and the Twentieth Century.
The Virginia Piedmont Heritage Area has a diverse and rich history. Our nineteenth-century landscape is one the of best preserved in the nation. The well-preserved houses, stone walls, churches, barns, mills, and rural roadways are essential to understanding how people worked, lived, and connected with each other.
