Registration is $10 per device connection and free for Preservation Virginia members. Members contact to sign up.

Father's Day Tour and Treats at Bacon's Castle
June 20 at 12 p.m.- 5 p.m.

Spend a memorable Father's Day at Bacon's Castle! Take a tour highlighting the construction of the Castle, and Northwest Crumbs will be onsite selling fresh brewed iced teas and sweet treats to enjoy. Cost of the tour is included with general admission. Don't forget, members attend for free!

Existing tools, such as rural historic districts, easements, section 106 reviews and heritage areas already combine the protection of natural and historic resources as well as environmental efforts. During the pandemic, the increased use of outdoors spaces has amplified the number of visitors to historic sites located on rural or forested properties, and opened up new opportunities to add outdoor, conservation and environmental programs.

Join us to explore new ways conservation, environmental and historic preservation efforts can work better together by using consensus-based approaches and outcomes.

Through your investment, we’re here to act as a preservation call center, helping communities find solutions to literally hundreds of preservation issues. At the same time, our six historic sites open to the public offer programming and student resources that drive tourism in their communities and connect people to history where it happened. All along, we support public policy programs that add to quality of life, preserve the places that make Virginia unique and hasten economic recovery.

Thank you so much for your support! Our work across the entire Commonwealth is only possible because of you.
