New Books

We maintain a good selection of new books, many by Norfolk authors and historians. They include both historical and fictional novels. And since we also have a collection of rare books that are new yet no longer being published, please take a close look to see if there is a treasure here that will only be available for a limited time.

Previously Enjoyed Books

Interesting books that have been donated to the Norfolk Historical Society for resale. They are priced according to age, condition, subject and rarity.

Should you find a book that interests you, however, you wish to know more about the condition of the book, please do not hesitate to contact us directly via phone or email for a more thorough description of the item and its condition.

Norfolk Historical Society Publications

These are special publications that deal with Norfolk topics and contain great data for genealogists. Edited and printed by the Norfolk Archive volunteers. They are always available as stapled booklets; however, many have been converted to digital format and may be emailed/downloaded to eliminate delays and save you postage.

Family Histories

Books, booklets and papers prepared by family historians / genealogists who have agreed that their histories may be copied and sold in support of the Norfolk Historical Society.

Note: If you have similar documents regarding your own family history that you would like to share with the world while helping the Norfolk Historical Society, please mail or deliver them to the Museum and we will add them to our Shop selection. Hopefully, some of your long lost relatives will find them here.


CD/DVD's, Prints (framed or loose), Maps, Mementos, etc

Note: Due to shipping challenges, some of these items are only available by visiting the Gift Shop in person.
