The NNVHS Headquarters and Research Library

Our Library is located at 15482 Kings Highway in Montross. The Library is handicapped accessible and a very comfortable environment in which to work. During the ongoing move of the Library's materials from their previous home at the Westmoreland County Museum, items are being fully inventoried, including the vertical files for various families of the Northern Neck. We have re-organized the books and are using a web-based cataloging service. The NNVHS book catalog site on the Internet is at



We continue to expand our collection through the identification and purchase of desired books - and we appreciate any suggestions for additions to the NNVHS collection. Volunteers are needed to help staff the headquarters, greet and assist patrons, and assist with data entry for our catalog.
