Welcome to the historic village of Appomattox Court House!

Visitors- With over a dozen buildings, a museum, theater, and bookstore, we suggest allowing at least two hours for your visit.

Please know much of the village terrain is relatively flat, however, there is a one-hundred yard walk uphill from the parking lot to get into the village.

Due to the historic nature of the historic village, surfaces are gravel, dirt, or grass and most buildings are not accessible to wheelchairs.

Accessibility

 
There are several problems with accessibility at the park including: the village is located on a ridge that requires visitors to proceed up a steep incline; the historic nature of the buildings in the park makes for many staircases that visitors have to traverse; while all visitors can see the films, there is no elevator access to the upstairs of the visitor center museum.
