Year-End Review (December 5, 2022): Each year, the VMHC adds hundreds of items to its already vast collections. Some of these improve our understanding of Virginia’s history, while others will help future generations better understand the times in which we live. Among our most recent acquisitions are objects associated with significant historical events as well as highly personal items that illustrate the daily lives of Virginians both past and present. Join the VMHC curators as they each share the stories behind their favorite objects added to our collections in 2022.
