Richmond County Museum


Richmond County Museum

Warsaw, Virginia

We are located on the Courthouse Green on Richmond Road, State Route 360 at Wallace
Street in the heart of the county seat of Warsaw. Our exhibits and tourist
welcome center are housed in the old jail built in 1872. 

Here we relate the story of Richmond County from prehistoric times to the present through our permanent and changing exhibits. These include the Native American Rappahannock Tribe,
English settler Colonel Moore Fauntleroy, founder of Old Rappahannock County
(1656), the African American legacy and contributions, Declaration of Independence
Signer Francis Lightfoot Lee of Menokin and Congressman William Atkinson Jones
of Warsaw, author of the 1916 Act that eventually guaranteed Independence to
the Philippines after the Spanish American War.
