Founded in 1963, the Society works for the preservation of landmarks and structures in the Waynesboro area.


The Society's headquarters are housed in the Oller House. Working for the preservation of landmarks and structures in the Waynesboro area, our monthly meetings, open to the public, feature speakers on topics of local interest.

The Society’s collections include a number of different types of materials:

  • Books and pamphlets: ranging from limited-edition and out-of-print volumes to current reference works and scholarly monographs.

  • Manuscripts: materials such as letters, diaries, account books, deeds, minutes, and scrapbooks. Manuscript collections include personal papers created by individuals and families, and records created by organizations and businesses.

  • Graphics: prints, watercolors, and other works of art on paper, architectural drawings, photographs, broadsides, maps, posters, and other images.

  • Printed ephemera: such as event programs, brochures, invitations, advertisements, trade cards, certificates, and menus.

  • Genealogical resources include many 3 ring binders with material on local family names, cemetery burial lists, undertakers records and other original local history in addition to published books and pamphlets.
