The Virginia Voices Project

For more than a year beginning in 2013, the Virginia Historical Society invited Virginians to film their responses to these questions:

What's your favorite place?
What's your family history?
What's in your backyard?
What are your hopes?

The resulting film, entitled Virginia Voices, is a snapshot of Virginia history as told by the people who live and work here. Although not every submission could be included in the thirty-seven-minute film, they have been archived on this website and can be viewed by searching or by exploring the map.
