History is alive in Tidewater Virginia.

TVHS believes in supporting and emphasizing educational interpretation of historic sites and the unique contributions of the Tidewater area of Virginia to American history. We actively seek to partner with historians, archaeologists, educators, and other non-profits with synergistic interests to provide special lectures, guided tours, educational programs, and periodic social events.



We provide educational opportunities for our members through special programs, lectures, bus tours, and exposure to a variety of historic places in the Tidewater Virginia region.
