Customer Spotlight: Doug Belote – Harborton History Museum

The Harborton History Museum opened its doors in June of 2016 with one local man’s goal – to preserve Harborton, Virginia’s past for future generations.fffffsadfsdfasdfa

Founder Doug Belote’s vision has been years in the making, starting in 2011 when he decided to display his collection of artifacts at Harborton’s annual yard sale. Upon discovering many were interested in his findings, Belote noticed an opportunity to give back to his hometown and educate people on Harborton’s history by starting a gallery to house his historical archives.   

Located in the town’s former U.S. Postal Service Office, Belote began filling the repurposed space with artifacts found around town, online auctions, and from donations made by town locals. He also built models of many historical Harborton buildings and constructed a replica of the Richmond sign for his exhibit.

Visitors are encouraged to check out the gift shop which features a variety of keepsakes for visitors to remember their experience, including embroidered hats, coffee mugs, Christmas tree ornaments, and many more unique souvenirs.
