"Preserving the Past for the Future"
The Woodstock Museum of Shenandoah County, Virginia, Inc. was founded in 1969 as a non-profit Virginia corporation with the purpose of stimulating interest in the early history of Woodstock and the surrounding area, and in the manners and customs of the people who lived here, and to collect, preserve, and display visible evidences of their way of life.
The Woodstock Museum consists of two 18th century houses located within a block of what is locally known as "The Old Shenandoah County Courthouse," the oldest active courthouse west of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Both of the Woodstock Museum houses, the Marshall House & the Wickham House, have historic connections to the Old Courthouse.
