Heritage Centre

The Heritage Center in Pemberton Historical Park serves as a museum of the history of Wicomico County.

A reproduction 18th century Eastern Shore Virginia tobacco barn, the Heritage Centre houses the Wicomico Society's collection and serves as its museum and headquarters. The current exhibit, "A Window to the Past -- A Day on the Farm in 1844" features artifacts from the Historical Society's collection of "cleverly" conceived interactive displays that are fun and educational for kids of all ages. The Pemberton Historical Park in which it is located also includes Pemberton Hall, a historic manor house.

We hope you enjoy our work.
