Historical Information

The Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities (APVA) was founded in 1889 in Williamsburg, Virginia, to preserve and restore deteriorating historical sites in Virginia. The APVA bought the site where Jamestown is located. Over the years the organization (recently renamed Preservation Virginia) has worked with public and private groups to restore sites. The group owns several sites in the state that are open to the public, including Bacon's Castle and the Cape Henry Lighthouse.

Records, 1890-1974, of the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities (now Preservation Virginia) consisting of minute books, record books, secretary's books, financial records and ledgers, Jamestown visitors registers, and scrapbooks detailing the activities and goals of the APVA.

Minute books include record book, 1896-1917, of the Washington Branch of the APVA containing applications, clippings, member lists, minutes, reports, and rules; and minute book, 1934-1944, of the Powhatan Hill Memorial Association consisting of articles, clippings, correspondence, lists, and minutes.
