RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Historical Society says it has topped its $38 million fundraising goal for capital projects.

The campaign allowed the organization to transform its Richmond headquarters into a museum and create a multi-purpose learning center. The 18-month construction project included creation of 4,000 square feet of exhibition space from relocated offices.

Among the new additions are the Story of Virginia exhibition and Virginia Voices, the state’s first crowd-sourced documentary.

The capital campaign was the Historical Society’s fourth in the past 25 years. The organization set out in 2011 to raise $32 million, but in November 2012 the board of trustees raised the goal to $38 million.
