Peninsula Heritage Miniature Society


Member of National Association of Miniature Enthusiasts (NAME) Since 1980


We are a small, but active group.  We usually do small monthly projects in conjunction with our meetings to increase our skills and interest in miniatures.

We are located in a very historic area of Virginia in the area of the "Historic Triangle" of Yorktown, Jamestown, and Williamsburg.  Our location has been a major influence on our club.  In 1981 We built a 1-inch scale replica of the Moore House on the Yorktown battlefield as it appeared after the renovations for the bicentennial of the Yorktown battle.  In 1985 it was presented to the Department of the Interior for display at the Yorktown Visitors Center where it stayed for several years.  As the National Park Service continued their research they determined that the Moore House was restored using the wrong paints, wallpapers, and furnishings so they updated the house.  Since our house was decorated wrong they asked if we could update the house.  Since it was built to match the house during the bicentennial we decided it would be better to remove the house as it was.  We are currently performing repairs and cleaning the house while looking for a suitable location to display this rather large dollhouse.

We have had several club field trips to the numerous houses in the area to see houses and gardens with history that spans from the 1600's up. 

We also attend NAME State Days, Regional, and National Conventions.  These conventions allow our members to meet other NAME members as well as miniature artists from all over the world.
