Virginia HumanitiesThe Northampton Historical Preservation Society announces the receipt of a $3,000 grant to produce a documentary video to recognize the historical role of the recently demolished 1914 Jail and other Northampton County jails that stood on the Eastville Court Green. Once the video is complete, it will be shown in a public “premiere” screening and discussion forum (date and place to be determined). The Historical Society is pleased to acknowledge that this video was made possible with the generous support of Virginia Humanities.

The mission of the Northampton Historic Preservation Society is to preserve the historic heritage of properties primarily in Northampton County, Virginia through education, advocacy, and restoration activities. For more information about the activities of the NHPS visit
