In 2001 the Truban family of Woodstock funded the opening of an archives in the new Shenandoah County Library building. Since then the Truban Archives has amassed a collection of over 10,000 documents, objects, photographs, and other artifacts from our area's past. Some of our more notable collections are:
-Shenandoah County Fair Books from 1927-present
-Bound volumes of the Shenandoah Valley, Shenandoah Herald, and Shenandoah Valley-Herald newspapers, 1923-present
-Baker store documents and ledgers
-Shenandoah County Church Collection that highlights area's houses of worship

You can search for items in these collections and others on our library catalog.
The library takes special precautions to ensure the integrity of these items so objects are only available when our archivist or a volunteer is available to assist you. Their regular hours are 10:00AM-5:30PM, Monday-Friday however these can vary so we recommend you contact us before visiting at 540-984-8200.
