What is the mission of the Society?

Since its inception, the Society’s mission has been to document, preserve and share with the public, the history of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. This has been achieved with the help of numerous professional historians, crafts people, artisans, musicians and educators who have brought this island’s rich history to life. Through its collections, publications, media, educational programs, field trips, special events and more, the Historical Society has been and continues to be the leading resource for discovering this very special island.
