Due to recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Virginia Department of Health over the spread of the COVID-19 virus, as well as our concerns for the health and well-being of our community, the Clarke County Historical Association will be closed to the public until further notice.  We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves, and will address further actions as things develop.  The staff of CCHA will continue to operate, and will provide updates through our social media pages, email, and website.  

We apologize for any inconvenience.  We ask the community to continue healthy practices and consult recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control for more information.   If anyone has any questions, feel free to contact us at the CCHA museum at 540-955-2600.


Due to recent CDC restrictions and to ensure that everyone stays safe and healthy, we will be cancelling the Spring showing of Art at the Mill.  Everyone is disappointed as we’ve all been working hard on the show. 

In continuing to support the arts, and with the costs we have already incurred for the show, we hope that you will consider a donation to the Clarke County Historical Association that will go towards Art at the Mill.  These donations will also help us prepare for the fall Art at the Mill show, as well as help support the Sarah P. Trumbower Scholarship that supports Clarke County students pursuing a degree in the Arts.  To donate, please click here, or send a check to CCHA, P.O. Box 306, Berryville, VA  22611.

 We apologize for any inconvenience, and look forward to better news for the 2020 Fall Show.
