The Newtown History Center offers museum exhibits and tours focusing on the people and events of Stephens City, Virginia’s long history.

The Newtown History Center is more than a museum that tells the story of the ordinary people who lived and worked in an old Virginia wagon road town. It is a collecting institution with a mission to preserve, document and interpret the material culture and lore of the town of Stephens City and its environs. It is also a repository of documents and photographs relating to the history of the town, its inhabitants and their families. We serve tourists, school groups, research scholars, local patrons as well as professional genealogists and ordinary family history enthusiasts. If you have a question about the history of Stephens City, we can answer it. In addition to the exhibits located in the main museum, there also are interpretive displays in neighboring buildings that discuss the town’s wagon making industry and the architectural history of a late Colonial era structure known locally as the Stone House.
