Holiday Open House December 11, 2016 – December 11, 2016

Holiday Open House

Appomattox Court House NHP
Appomattox, VA 24522
434-352-8987
www.nps.gov/apco

The staff and volunteers of Appomattox Court House National Historical Park and our friends group the Appomattox 1865 Foundation invite everyone to the 2016 Holiday Open House on Sunday, December 11, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The village will be decorated with freshly made hand crafted wreaths made from local greenery and will offer a glimpse of 1860s Virginia when families celebrated a more simply decorated, Civil War era Christmas. As in many years past, the Park is thankful to the Appomattox Garden Club for providing the period style decorations. There will also be a children’s craft station, where old-fashioned Christmas ornaments can be made as keepsakes. The Visitor Center will be the stop for hot coffee and refreshments.
The Open House is meant to be a neighborly gesture for the community and a perfect chance to come by and see the latest projects and hear about changes that have occurred over the last year and plans for 2017. For example, this year the park has become an admission free park and has made some nice improvements to the History Trail. There are more plans to share concerning the Appomattox 1865 Foundation, trails, accessibility, and the 152nd anniversary for 2017 just to name a few. If you are out and about on December 11 please consider stopping by the park for some refreshments, holiday cheer, and good conversation about your local national park.
For questions concerning the event, please call the park Visitor Center at 434-352-8987 ext. 226 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily.
