Ann K and Preston H Leake Local History and Genealogy Collection

Welcome to the Ann K and Preston H Leake Local History and Genealogy Collection of the Appomattox Regional Library System. This begins our  effort to digitize primary documents, photographs, and slides reflecting the history of Hopewell, Prince George County, and Dinwiddie County. These materials are housed in the Ann K and Preston H Leake Local History and Genealogy room at the Hopewell Library.

The Local History and Genealogy Collection (LHGC) of the Appomattox Regional Library System (ARLS) in cooperation with local historical societies acquires, organizes, preserves, and provides access and guidance to materials that document the social, cultural, political, and economic heritage of the area it serves.This project was made possible through the generous gift of Anne and Preston Leake to the ARLS Local History and Genealogy Room. We are deeply appreciative of the Leakes’ support for the conservation and dissemination of  the history of our local community. Please click on this link to take you to the collection

ARLS is digitizing the LHGC in order  to better serve its patrons and to facilitate the effortless use of these primary resources for their research needs. We welcome any feedback you are willing to provide. Please email us at admin@arls.org or call us at (804) 458-6329.
