Come join us for our first meeting of the year!

Virginia Presidents Book.

Travel Virginia's historic past:

  • "At Home with the Virginia Presidents" is an engaging armchair travel and history talk about the eight Virginia-born presidents and the sites that shaped their lives. We will travel the state - from Staunton to Charles City and Wytheville to Winchester - to (virtually) visit the homes and historic sites of the Virginia presidents. Attendees will learn a bit about the presidents' lives, take a peek inside their homes and get ideas for their next history road trip. The illustrated talk is 40 minutes, followed by Q&A and a book signing.
  • About the Book:

  • Virginia's Presidents: A History and Guide (The History Press, 2023) tells the stories of the Virginia presidents and the historic sites that interpret their lives. It includes biographies of each of the eight presidents and descriptions of the museums, historic sites and presidential homes in Virginia and surrounding states that tell their stories and, by extension, the story of our nation.
  • Heather S. Cole.



    About the Author:

  • Heather S. Cole is a public historian and writer living in Staunton, Virginia. She has worked in a variety of museum and archives, including as an interpreter for the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum in Staunton.

Her fourth book for The History Press - Ohio's Presidents: A History & Guide - will be published in May.
