About the Urbanna Museum

Home to the Mitchell Map, considered the most important map in American history, the Scottish Factor Store (aka Urbanna Museum) in charming Urbanna is a journey back into colonial America. The circa 1766 brick warehouse, known by locals as the Old Tobacco Warehouse, was once the meeting place of tobacco growers and merchants trading goods and news of the day in pre-Revolutionary War America. Today you can find the remarkable 1755 Mitchell Map and other historic exhibits that tell the story of the rise of the New World.
