Welcome to the THS Homepage!

Founded in 2018, the Toano Historical Society was created to inspire a sense of community spirit, promote interest in Toano history, and preserve our small-town character.

Toano has a long and rich history, and the town was once the commercial center for Upper James City County. In the 1960s, changes to Route 60 caused the town to lose much of its visual and historic character. THS is working to make people aware of our history and to revitalize this “Village of Stores.”
