Vinton History Museum

preserving the past ... for the future

The Vinton Historical Society  invites you to tour the Upson House, home of the Vinton Museum, where thousands of historically significant artifacts reside.

The Museum has acquired more than 4,000 items for display and preservation. Exhibits include the Military Hall, Music/Church Room, School Room, Dining Room, Art Gallery, Kitchen, Children's Room, Bedroom, Business Room, and Tool Room.
The Museum also houses a vast collection of photographs from in and around the Vinton area — right in the heart of Virginia's Blue Ridge. 

Additionally, we keep archives of weddings, deaths, military service, churches, clubs, organizations, buildings, homes, and cemeteries. 

More than 1,000 people visit the Museum annually.
