Things To Know Before You Come
Visiting Appomattox Court House National Historical Park is largely a self-guiding experience. For this reason it is recommended that you begin your tour at the visitor center and get a map of the park. The visitor center is in the reconstructed courthouse building. Not all of the park is accessible, please refer to the accessibility page for more information. Depending on the season though, there may be a number of programs offered to help you get more out of your visit. Here are some points to consider when planning your visit.
