The Waynesboro Heritage Museum portrays the history of Waynesboro through permanent and rotating exhibit galleries and the nTelos audio visual room. Permanent panels within each gallery reiterate the City’s history from the Beverley Grant under King George II of England in 1797, early Teasville (Teesville), and Waynesboro’s namesake, Brigadier General Anthony Wayne, Basic City, Railroad, Education, Industry, Memorable Waynesboro, Postcard Gallery, Fishburne Drug Store, and Banks of Waynesboro.

The portrayal begins with a Welcome to Waynesboro, the Heritage Gift Shop, panels of the history of the bank building itself and the Waynesboro Coat of Arms. A Waynesboro quilt (quilted by ladies of Waynesboro for our 1997 Bicentennial celebration) graces our entry greeting room depicting historical buildings and events. Rotating exhibits (both mini and large) enhance the permanent exhibits through additional loaned artifacts.
