President’s Message 4/20/20

Friends of the AWHM,

Due to the current international emergency surrounding COVID-19, the doors to our beloved de Witt Cottage are closed. We continue to monitor the situation and follow recommendations and guidelines provided by the City of Virginia Beach and Governor Northam’s Office. Please stay safe and healthy as we navigate this difficult time.

I would like to thank Mark and Margie Cromwell for their vision and support for the very successful fundraiser hosted at the museum. There generosity raised just over $16,000 for our organization as well as exposed new members of our community to our museum. Again, I send my sincere appreciation and gratitude.

All for now as we weather this storm together. As always, should you have questions, please feel free to email me at

Stay safe and healthy.

Jason Seward
