Welcome to the MuseumHistory buffs will find a wealth of information at the Middlesex County Museum. It opened in 1935, making it the first county museum of its kind in Virginia. An old country store and General "Chesty" Puller memorabilia are prominent features, and the gift shop includes books on local history written by local authors. With county records dating back to the 1600s, family histories can be traced back through several generations. The museum is located on General Puller Highway near the courthouse in the historic, rural county seat of Saluda. The neighboring annex building houses a new exhibit, The History of Education in Middlesex County , and the lovely and serene Puller Park is just across the street.
