The Historic Shenandoah County Courthouse Museum and Visitor Center is closed during the months of January and February. The current plan is to reopen the first weekend of March, 2021. The Museum and Visitor Center is located at 103 N. Main Street in Woodstock VA.
The Museum may also be visited during this time by appointment via 540-459-1795 or e-mail: SCHS.VA@gmail.com.
There is no charge to visit the Museum and Visitor Center, though donations are accepted. The bookstore in the Visitor Center is fully stocked and we are also processing mail-in book orders. The US Forest Service currently has a special exhibit in the Visitor Center. In accordance with Covid-19 requirements, all visitors must wear a mask and observe social distance requirements currently in effect in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
We hope you will plan a visit in the future.
