The Goochland County Historical Society

Founded in 1968, the Goochland County Historical Society is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, tax exempt educational organization created and operated for the presentation, preservation and protection of Goochland County heritage and tradition. To fulfill its mission, the Society has collected manuscripts, artifacts, genealogical, and architectural information pertaining to Goochland and Virginia. These resources, some of them rare and unique, are made available to the public at the Society’s history center located at 2924 River Road West. Our hours are Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. and the second Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. We can be reached at 804-556-3966 or by email at


Please give what you can. Your donation supports our mission to collect, preserve, and interpret the history of Goochland County, Virginia. Your donation to the Society will allow us to have programs so that the people in our community can continue to learn about and be inspired by the past.
