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


Given the current situation with COVID-19, the Clarke County Historical Association has decided to cancel this fall’s showing of Art at the Mill, which was scheduled to open to the public on Saturday, September 26th, with Patron’s Night occurring on Friday, September 25th.  The spring showing of Art at the Mill, originally scheduled to run between April 25th-May 10th, was also cancelled due to safety concerns regarding COVID-19.

“We are saddened CCHA has had to cancel both the spring and fall art shows in what was to be its 30th year.” CCHA Director Nathan Stalvey said.  “However, the safety of the volunteers, staff, artists, and patrons is of the utmost importance.  Given the feedback we received from those who participate in Art at the Mill every year, as well as the unknown situation with COVID-19, we felt that the decision to cancel the fall showing of Art at the Mill was the best decision.  We are optimistic that a vaccine for COVID-19 can be found so that we may bring back Art at the Mill stronger and better than ever in 2021.”

The cancellation of both the spring and fall showings of Art at the Mill leaves the Association with a significant budget shortfall for 2020.  As a result, CCHA is launching a Burwell-Morgan Mill Sponsorship drive that will allow people to donate at various levels in lieu of purchasing artwork and/or Patron’s Night tickets.  100% of donations go towards the general operation costs of CCHA, which include the preservation and maintenance of the historic Burwell-Morgan Mill.  All contributions are tax deductible.  Please contact Nathan Stalvey, Director, for more information.  This email address is being protected from spambots.
