The History Store’s storefront window alone will tell its passersby that this is not your ordinary store. Inside is an extraordinary selection of miniature soldier scenes spanning human history. Look up and there are even paratroopers skydiving from the ceiling. But that’s not all. There’s a wide variety of scale model buildings and fighting machines from ships to armored vehicles to aircraft.
A walk around the store is like a walk inside a museum from one display to the next, each with a fascinating story playing out in the meticulously crafted dioramas. It features one of the largest collections and selections of miniatures around.
The store isn’t just about the vast array of miniatures from Woodland Indians to Civil War and more. It also serves the history buffs with historical-based busts and other sculptures, books and bookends, videos and gift items, Virginia Metalcrafters, and solid Brass made in America.
