Get Involved

We are a small – but growing – historical society in Burke, Virginia, composed of people with an interest in preserving the area’s history – history of its people, its places, and its personalities. The Society’s members are young and old, long-term residents and new imports to the community, professional and amateur historians, and people who just like to get together and learn something about history.


We invite all who are interested in learning, sharing, and preserving the history of Burke, Virginia to become part of our large Burke Family and look forward to hearing from you.


We welcome you to enjoy our Society through our website, but encourage you to come out and participate at our monthly meetings and special events.
