Upcoming Events

Civil War Book Group

First Thursdays

After years of conflict over the institution of slavery, the Civil War would be the turning point that set the course of the United States into the 20th century and beyond. Join us as we explore the meaning of the Civil War and how the past has shaped who we are today through a diverse selection of narratives, novels, and histories. This program is in partnership with the Central Rappahannock Regional Library.

Check our Calendar for a full listing of park events and programs.

If you are interested in planning or hosting your own event in the park, please refer to the Permits & Reservations page for guidance.
