The Wythe County Historical Review is an annual publication by the Wythe County Historical Society dedicated to providing members with fascinating historical narratives, articles on area architecture and historic sites, regional genealogy, local museum initiatives and much more.
The Wythe County Historical Society is now making its annual review available for online viewing and use to subscribers for only $10 per year. This is a flat rate available for individuals and institutions, Historical Society members and non-members.
This new online service is not replacing printed subscriptions to The Review that Society members currently receive as part of their membership. Society members will continue receiving printed reviews. Subscribing to this online service is an optional addition to current membership dues and circulations you receive through the mail.
Click here to sign up for yourself, institution, or as a gift and you will have access to over eighty issues of the Wythe County Historical Review from the convenience of your computer screen.
Once you sign up, you will be provided a link to the Paypal website for payment processing. Once payment is received, you will be given access to the database.
The Wythe County Historical Society invites the submission of articles relevant to the history of Wythe County, Virginia. Supporting documentation is required for all articles, with the occasional exception for reminiscences. All materials accepted for publication will be edited for usage and style. Upon request authors may review edited material prior to publication. Articles too lengthy to appear in a single issue of the review may, with the authors consent, be published in multiple parts.
The author is responsible for the accuracy of an articles content and for obtaining any needed permissions to quote or cite copyrighted or manuscript materials or to reproduce illustrations. A copy of permission letters should accompany the manuscript.
Photos and illustrations should be clearly identified and captions provided. Rare or sole copies of documents or photographs should not be submitted. The author will be responsible for securing release or permission for use of graphics which are owned by other publications or museums. Notice of such releases should be submitted with the article so appropriate credit may be printed. Although illustrative materials will be handled with care and will, as a matter of policy, be returned to the author following publication, the Wythe County Historical Society cannot guarantee their safekeeping.
Accepted materials published on a one-time, first rights basis.
Payment to the author is in copies only. Authors receive three copies of the issue in which their articles appear. Author copies are in addition to membership copies.
