The mission of the Cape Charles Historical Society is very important to our area. They strive to build awareness and pride in the cultural and historical diversity of the Eastern Shore of Virginia, particularly Cape Charles. The society works to create a community center for the presentation of education programs of interest and importance to the community. They preserve and catalog local and regional historic structures, artifacts, photographs, and oral history for tomorrow’s citizens. They also support a regional historic archive and research office for collection. They serve as a welcome center for the town of Cape Charles, with information on the town, local businesses, restaurants, activities, and more. During the warm season, they sponsor the Cape Charles Farmers Market at the Museum.
