Tricentennial Richmond County, Virginia - Museum Dedication

Richmond County Celebrates its 300th Anniversary and our Museum is Founded

Under the direction of a twelve-member Tricentennial Commission, Richmond County mounted a year-long celebration that included publishing a history of the county, surveying the county’s historical sites, and celebrating with parades, concerts, games, canoe races, speeches, and a costume ball. On May 23, 1992, after opening ceremonies at Sabine Hall and a luncheon, the dedication of the Richmond County Museum was performed at the circa 1818 Clerks office where the newly created museum was housed at the time.
