This is your chance to hear stories from her experiences through more than thirty years with the historical society, ask questions, and just chat with our beloved “Curious Curator.” In all her years with the society, she helped to build a world class museum, grow and care for the collections, and make sure the stories that make up the area’s history are preserved for future generations to enjoy and learn from.
In addition to her work with the society, Virginia served on the Board of the Ohio Local History Alliance, taught numerous classes in museum administration and collections care as an adjunct professor at Wright State University, and taught local classes and workshops in collections care.
Over the years, between moving artifacts from the historical society’s former homes at Memorial Hall, 818 N. Fountain, Thompson Avenue , and many times around the Heritage Center, she always joked that she needed a shirt that said, “Clark County Historical Society: A Moving Experience.” Upon her retirement, her colleagues finally made that a reality! All joking aside, Virginia will tell you that her career was full of moving moments!
Between dealing with collections care and management following a major water disaster at the Heritage Center in 2019 and a global pandemic in 2020 it may not have been the ideal way to wrap a long and rewarding career, but Virginia’s love and care for the collection and its stories will always be evident here at the Heritage Center.
