Repository description (extant): The Warren Heritage Society is the Front Royal/Warren County community's historical society, archives, and museum. Established as a non-profit organization in 1971, the Warren Heritage Society has held the Shenandoah Valley's Festival of Leaves since that year.

The Society periodically collected and displayed artifacts of local history in the Courthouse Square Law Offices, c. 1836, from the late 1960s-1980, at which point the c. 1819 Ivy Lodge -- formerly the town library -- became home for the museum's exhibits. The Ivy Lodge Museum exhibits on county history, which include both permanent and annually rotating exhibits, was completely renovated in 2003. Ivy Lodge today also offers visitors a Gift Shop and Book Store specializing in local history, traditions, and crafts.
