The preservation of history is paramount. The Hill House Museum is the only historic home museum in Portsmouth, VA. Like most non-profits today, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to raise the needed funds for house/grounds maintenance and repairs, as well as general monthly operating expenses. Recently, the Hill House Museum has undertaken a large restoration project due to many years of termite damage, and general age-related problems. (The last major restoratio...n was done in 1974).
The rich Portsmouth history is reflected at the Hill House Museum in the fortunes and fate of the Hill Family. Through fundraisers, memberships, and donations, PHA has been able to provide quality educational programs, archival projects, and many other historic ventures. All funds received go to the restoration and preservation at the Hill House Museum, and the continuing mission of the Association to preserve and tell the story of the history of Portsmouth. Our website is www.thehillhousemuseum.org and find us on Facebook/Instagram.
The mission of PHA is to preserve, share, and educate the public about the Historic Hill House and all of Historic Portsmouth.
