Reservations are preferred in advance for a ranger guided walking tour but impromptu tours are offered when staff is available. Larger groups are recommended to make reservations to ensure the confirmation of a tour.

Walking tours generally last 30 minutes to one hour and we also have a 15 minute introductory video in our auditorium.

To make a reservation, call the park at (540) 721-2094. We suggest that you book your selected tour date as far in advance as possible. There is no fee for the program.

Did You Know?


The "T" in Booker T. Washington's name stands for Taliaferro. Booker found out later in life his mother had given him this as a last name but he did not describe why. He made it his middle name.
