RECENTLY FEATURED ON TRAVELCHANNEL.COM Come to Orange to discover your own family history, or to research important historical subjects! As an historian and archaeologist, Sam has spent many hours in local archives researching a number of historical topics, and the Holladay House has hosted a number of professional historians and amateur researchers who have done the same. We are ideally located in the Town of Orange, only one block away from the Orange County Historical Society and the Orange County Courthouse. This package includes: • Personal introduction to the Orange County Historical Society staff, collections, and research guides • Personal introduction to the Orange County Courthouse archives and staff (Land records, deeds, tax records, court orders, etc.) • Complimentary copy of "Remembering: A History of Orange County, Virginia" by Frank S. Walker • Free WIFI and internet access • Use of our Library of Virginia library card for access to online records (the Library of Virginia is in Richmond, and is an amazing repository of historical and genealogical material) • Use of our own library, which includes numerous materials on local history, including out-of-print and hard-to-find copies of W.W. Scott's "A History of Orange County, Virginia" and Ann Miller's "Antebellum Orange" • Advice and guidance from a professionally-trained Virginia historian and genealogist
