GENERAL DESCRIPTION:  The P. Buckley Moss Museum is located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley in Waynesboro, Virginia. Closely resembling many of the larger houses built by early 19th century settlers, it is an appropriate setting for exhibiting works by P. Buckley Moss, one of America's most recognized and most popular artists.

Since the early 1960's, Moss has found her inspiration and much of her subject matter in the Valley scenery and in the Amish and Mennonite peoples of the area. She considers the example of the lifestyles of these traditional "Plain People" to hold an important message for modern society. The Museum reflects in its exhibitions and programs a similar concern for this cultural and environmental heritage
