Alexandria Historical Society

The Alexandria Historical Society was founded in 1974.  The mission of the society is to promote an active interest in American history, particularly the history of Alexandria and that of the Commonwealth of Virginia as a whole. 

Membership benefits include lectures by outstanding speakers, publications relating to local history, and special events, including receptions, meetings, and tours.  In addition, a ten percent discount will be given to members in The Lyceum Museum Shop.  Lectures and membership meetings take place on the fourth Wednesday of September, October, March, April, May and June.

Society is an all volunteer, non-profit organization, and is run with no office space, office hours, phones, or paid staff. The Society is not a library and does not have collections of historical documents.  Please check our Links for local resources.
