The projects you have read about on this site represent a significant and long-term commitment to preserving Jefferson County’s heritage. Despite our dedication, these projects will not succeed without additional financial and volunteer support.


Financial contributions not designated for a specific purpose will be added to the operating account for expenses such as: restoration of the buildings and grounds, digitization of newspapers and records, and educational projects like signs and brochures.

Additionally, within the past five years, JCHLC has undertaken the large task of working with and supporting the preservation of Civil War battlefields in Jefferson County.  Key partners in this effort include the Shepherdstown Battlefield Preservation Association, Land Trust of the Eastern Panhandle, Friends of the Summit Point Battlefield, Middleway Conservancy, Civil War Trust, American Battlefield Protection Program and the Jefferson County Farmland Protection Board.  As a result, JCHLC is the direct steward of properties on the Shepherdstown Battlefield and the advocate of County wide preservation at the Summit Point Battlefield, Smithfield Crossing Battlefield and Williamsport Action that took place near Kearneysville on June 16, 1863.  This vast undertaking requires support, some of which is accrued through grant funding, but private support is needed! Please consider making a donation to JCHLC battlefield preservation and site management  needs today.
