For the last 52 years, the Stafford County Historical Society has had as its goal the establishment of a county museum.  This is not a project for which the Society can be wholly responsible.  The physical plant, staffing, and artifact acquisition, maintenance, and display are far beyond our financial capabilities.  In order for this to become a reality, Stafford County government must take the lead and commit itself to the endeavor.  Stafford is one of the wealthiest counties in the nation, yet we have no dedicated place to tell the story of our history and people.  We ask that you, our members, become involved in encouraging our county leaders to undertake this as a worthwhile and necessary project.  You can help by:

–telephoning or writing letters to your supervisors

–speaking at meetings of the Board of Supervisors

–writing editorials for the Free Lance-Star

–appearing at candidates’ forums and asking them about their plans for a Stafford County museum
