“founded in 1831”
The Virginia Historical Society was founded in 1831. Like most of the nation's older historical societies, it has always been a private organization, one that derives virtually all its support from membership and endowment. At the organizational meeting in 1831, Chief Justice John Marshall was elected its first president, and former president James Madison was elected its first honorary member.
