The Eastern Shore of Virginia Historical Society at Ker Place is a non-profit cultural center located on the Eastern Shore. The Society resides in and maintains Ker Place, an 18th century Federal style mansion, not only as a museum and research facility, but as a venue for the community to enjoy. The museum represents the early 19th century lifestyle of the upperclass shoremen, and has rotating and permanent exhibits to include: the log canoe the Annie C., the life of General John Cropper, and his grandson, Governor Henry Wise, and a 19th century herb garden maintained by the Master Gardeners. The Society also holds a variety of events throughout the year including History Camps for students, Music on the Lawn, art shows and weekend festivals.
