The Virginia Heritage Fund supports the collection and preservation of the documentary history of our region and efforts to make that history broadly accessible. The fund works with museums, libraries, archives and historical societies to ensure that important historical documents are both protected and available to historians, genealogists and the public, now and in the future.
The Virginia Heritage Fund was established with an initial gift from Ms. Paula Felder. Ms. Felder was an astute and avid historian. She worked tirelessly to record and preserve the history of the Fredericksburg region. She is the author of Forgotten Companions and Fielding Lewis and the Washington Family, as well as many articles in the Town & County section of The Free Lance-Star.
