The mission of the Shenandoah Room is to acquire, record, preserve and provide access to information about life in Shenandoah County, Virginia.
The Shenandoah Room & Truban Archives acquires, identifies, collects, preserves, catalogs and provides access to family, business, governmental and private papers, maps, books and other ephemera concerning past and present events occurring in Shenandoah County. These letters, books and records are available for study within the Shenandoah Room.
The Shenandoah Room is located at the Shenandoah County Library in Edinburg, VA. The Shenandoah Room is open during regular library hours.
Due to the concerns for the security of the collections, the Shenandoah Room will not be open when there are only two staff on duty in the building on evenings and Saturdays. Materials in the Archives are only open when the Director, Assistant Director, or Adult Services Librarian is free to locate requested materials. Should you need access to items in the Truban Archives, we recommend that you make an appointment.
