History-Museum.Org is based in Roanoke, VA. It is the property of Warrenstudio, LLC, and serves as a virtual sandbox for owner Stephen Warren. Content shown through this portal will range from the incomplete to almost-published. Geographic emphasis will typically be given to items of interest to Roanoke and Southwestern Virginia, as well as strange threads of curiosity based on nothing more than whimsy.
The owner has spent a lifetime collecting stray bits of history in the form of photographs, articles, scrapbooks and ephemera. Many of these items were collected with a hope of someday using their contents as publishing fodder for small-run book titles. Thus the launch of History-Museum.Org and the equally under-announced formation of Lost Pages Press (another business entity of Warrenstudio, LLC).
