In addition to the park visitor centers at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville, there are four historic buildings that are open to the public. Chatham is open daily, the others less often depending upon the time of year.
* Chatham Manor is a stately colonial mansion with beautiful gardens and views of old town Fredericksburg and the Rappahannock River. The house was a major Union headquarters and hospital during the Civil War. It is possible that no home in America has a longer list of famous people who have walked the floors of this historic building. Half of the ten rooms have exhibits and docents are on hand to give tours and answer questions. It is also the park headquarters. It is open daily 9:00-4:30.
