I don't think you'll have any luck with shows this time of year. If you wanted to come in closer to Richmond there is a tractor museum that just opened this year. I haven't been there, but it looks like they have a pretty large collection. Check their website for hours. http://www.keystonetractorworks.com/

I think the Chippokes Farm Plantation is closed in the winter to the general public. Maybe you could call and get a private tour. They have a nice collection of Farm items. It's located near Surry Va which is not far from Norfolk. Merton
