Celebrating over 250 Years of life in a small town in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia!
Settlers have resided in the beautiful Northern Shenandoah Valley since the 1730s and have left behind a rich heritage. Strasburg, Virginia became well known for its pottery manufacturing, with the first pottery dating back to 1761. At least 17 skilled potters produced earthen and stoneware pottery commercially until just after 1900.
The Strasburg Museum opened to the public as a National Historic Landmark in 1970.
Items on display feature authentic pieces from our local area spanning the Colonial era through the mid twentieth century. These exhibits include:
