Poquoson Virginia Culture
The Virginia Museum of History and Culture is home to a special exhibition on the history and culture of Poquoson, Virginia, and its people from the 18th century to modern times.
The museum and the Historical Society are committed to preserving and promoting the history and culture of Poquoson, and there will be a restoration and opening of the Tom Hunt Store. The museum has teamed up with the Historical Society and Arcadia Publishing to develop a photographic history book on Po Quosonson entitled Images of America's Po Quosoons. The proceeds from the sale of this book will help to ensure the necessary financing for the operations of both groups. Over 400 paintings by Virginia-based VWS artists were submitted, and the final selection was made by award-winning artists, including Fred E. Smith, an internationally recognized watercolor artist and painter, and the Virginia Museum of History and Culture.
With the help of this comprehensive list you can take advantage of the history and culture that Poquoson has to offer. Then we will give an overview of how the Po Quosonson Museum and the collection of the Virginia Museum of History and Culture are an integral part of its culture. Finally, I will talk about the public works programs in Poqon and how they have changed the environment of the city over time.
The Virginia Watercolor Society is a national organization established to promote interest and participation in watercolor painting in the Commonwealth of Virginia, the United States of America and the world.
The city is located in the southwest part of the Chesapeake Bay, on a peninsula of 20 square miles and shares a border and water boundary with the city of Hampton. Poquoson is also the capital of Virginia, the second largest city in Virginia and the third largest in North Carolina and is located at the southern end of a three-mile peninsula on the eastern shore of the Cape Fear River. The city is a small town within the peninsula, which covers twenty square miles, but it is located within a larger peninsula with a total area of about 45 square miles.
What is interesting about this wildlife refuge is that it is owned by the Department of Defense and is part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers National Wildlife Refuge.
In February 2004, the museum partnered with the City of Poquoson and applied for a grant to relocate the business and move it about a mile down the street. With the help of the community, this reconstruction project has continued throughout the summer and fall and is an important step in restoring the museum's ability to collect, preserve and showcase the history and heritage of Poquoonson, Virginia.
Anyone interested in the efforts of the museum, who has questions or who simply wants to meet a museum membership is cordially invited to attend the meeting. When a professional photographer takes a photo session on the museum grounds, he is recommended to contact the president of the museum, Mr. Paul Whitlow.

In 2003, the Poquoson Historical and Cultural Museum Foundation acquired the historic wash house on the south side of the city's main street. This turn-of-the-century structure, which was preserved in its original condition, was purchased by the Commonwealth of Virginia in the late 1930s with a $1.5 million grant.
English settlement in the Virginia Colony, founded in 1610 by Sir Thomas Gates in Kecoughtan and eventually part of the present city of Hampton, this land was occupied and opened as a settlement in 1628. The English settlement, the Virginia Colony, founded in 1610 by SirThomas Gates in Kecoughan and eventually part of today's City of Hamptons, is occupied by the Poquoson Historical and Cultural Museum Foundation and the city's historic wash house on the south side of Main Street. This land was occupied by a group of settlers from the English colony and opened as a settlement. In the settlement years of 16-28 it was occupied by a group of settlers from the English colony, who were founded and eventually became part of the present city of Portsmouth.
The present city is part of a large area known to the English colonists as New Poquoson Parish of the Church of England. It is also one of the few to retain a name derived from the Indians who inhabited the area before the British colonisation began in the 17th century. The first mention of Po Quosonson is believed to have been in a letter to Christopher the Great, the founder of what is now Elizabeth City County, in 1611. English colonists, it is a small village in a larger area known to them as the "New Po quos on the Parish Church" in England, and was home to a number of churches, schools, churches and other institutions.
