We need your help!  The COVID-19 pandemic has had a tremendous impact on the finances of the Clarke County Historical Association.  Many of our events had to be cancelled, including Art at the Mill.  As a result, we are looking at a $40,000 budget shortfall, which will greatly affect our operations.  This includes the preservation of our beloved Burwell-Morgan Mill.  Please consider making a tax-deductible Burwell-Morgan Mill Sponsorship today.  While the levels below are suggested giving levels to help us reach our goal faster, any amount helps.  All contributions are greatly appreciated!

$5,000 (Legacy Sponsor)
$2,500 (Water Wheel Sponsor)
$1,000 (Hopper Sponsor)
$500 (Wheat Stone Sponsor)
$250 (Corn Stone Sponsor)

Thank you for investing in Clarke County’s history! Contributions to the Burwell-Morgan Mill Sponsorship will allow us to keep the lights on, the staff paid, and the water wheel turning at the Burwell-Morgan Mill.  Stock transfers are also accepted.


Art is back at the Mill! While the pandemic forced CCHA to cancel Art at the Mill, we are still able to bring you some great art! This fall, we're launching an Artist in Residence program. Each Saturday from 10-5 and Sunday from 12-5 a different artist will perform art demonstrations and sell their work. A portion of the proceeds go towards CCHA's operating costs.  

Here is our schedule of artists for this fall:

9/12 - Sat Lynden Willingham
9/13 - Sun Liisa Strandman-Long
9/19 - Sat Kathleen Howsare
9/20 - Sun Carol Lee Thompson

The Clarke County Historical Association is now open Tuesday-Fridays from 11-3 p.m. as part of the phase 3 of Virginia's re-opening plan. 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 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.
