The following is an announcement from the U.S. National Genealogical Society:
NGS Signs Contract to Sell Glebe House
On 6 August 2004, the National Genealogical Society signed a contract to sell their Arlington, Virginia headquarters.
Since March 1985, when NGS relocated to the property known as Glebe House, this building has been the center for the Society’s offices, staff and programs. Built in the1850s on property purchased for the Glebe of Fairfax Parish in 1770, Glebe House was placed on the Virginia Historic Landmarks Register in 1971 and the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. The prospective purchasers plan to restore the house and property and make it their home.
Before final settlement, scheduled for early November 2004, NGS will move to modern, leased office space in the vicinity of its present site. A search is now underway for new National Genealogical Society headquarters.
Look for an upcoming announcement of the Society’s new address and future plans.
