The Rapidan River Relic Hunters Association (RRRHA) was formed in June 2011 with the goals of "Preserving our History with Integrity" and "Remembering the Civil War Soldiers with Honor."  Our club headquarters is located in the East Orange Ruritan Building at Unionville Virginia

The membership primarily comes from counties found along Virginia's Rapidan River valley, however there are members from as far away as Georgia. We meet at the Ruritan building at 7:00 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month. If you are interested in joining you can contact us and an application will be emailed to you. Our contact email address is rrrha@live.com. Our USPS address is P.O. Box 209, Unionville, VA 22567.
