WCCF Storybook

WCCF Storybook logo

Who doesn't love a good story?

WCCF Storybook is a leadership initiative of the Foundation designed to connect Foundation donors and local charities through storytelling.

Stories that elicit the strongest emotions are those that are most likely to motivate action such as giving or volunteering. Those are the stories we seek to tell through WCCF Storybook.

Any charity providing services in Washington County is invited to participate by forwarding a human interest story to Stories should be limited to 500 words and include at least one compelling photo.

Mark It With an L

“L” is for Landmark.

Throughout Washington County, this signature “L” of the Washington County History & Landmarks Foundation celebrates our history, culture, and architecture while amplifying awareness of local preservation.

Hundreds of wooden and metal “L” plaques adorn privately and publicly owned structures. We pass them every day - knowingly and unknowingly. These landmarks - inducers of curiosity - preserve stories, secrets, and family legacies. They call attention to the growth of our community and illustrate how local architecture evolved.
