The Greenwood Library Archives and Special Collections collects and makes accessible records of historical importance to the university, region, and state. We celebrate curiosity and encourage the exploration of new ideas by engaging with our unique collections. We also serve as the repository for the Farmville Prince Edward County Historical Society and the Moton Museum.
The Greenwood Library Archives and Special Collections contain unique materials significant to the history of Longwood University, Farmville, Virginia, and Prince Edward County, Virginia. The Greenwood Library Archives and Special Collections are made accessible to the public as historic records. Some materials within the collection contain images, language, and other elements that are offensive, hurtful, or racist in nature. These records are preserved and maintained to document a time and place in history, capture contemporary social attitudes and behaviors, and offer evidence of the need for constant vigilance in building a more inclusive future. They do not mirror the current views of Longwood University or Greenwood Library.Requests for any materials from the Archives or Special Collections can be made by utilizing the Request Form. Likewise, requests for access to any materials from the Archives and Special Collections can also be made by contacting Jamie Krogh or in-person at The Desk.
