Herbert R. Collins was born in Caroline County in 1932. He became interested in history at an early age since his home "Green Falls" was built in 1711 as a tav- ern and stagecoach stop on the road to Richmond. After college graduation and serving in the US Army, he was hired by the Smith- sonian Institution in Washington, DC where he worked diligently until retirement in 1990. He is the author of numerous articles and books.

Historic Port Royal, Inc. honored him as prime benefac- tor of their new museum at their Grand Opening in November 2012. Today the Museum is a showplace and final home for the Collins collections of White House China, Toleware, Sidney King paintings and other historic items and artifacts. The Museum is always open to the public every Saturday from 10-4pm. There is no charge. HPR is a to- tally volunteer organization. The Gift Shop features many books of local history.
