Fall Homeschool Day


  • September 21, 2021 | 10:00 am

Pamplin Historical Park is offering its annual Fall Homeschool Day on Tuesday, September 21, 2021, from 10:00am to 2:00 pm. Students will be led by an experienced park educator through three of our programs: “Why They Fought,” an interactive program which gives students a better understanding about why the nation divided and came to war; “Civil War Battles,” which examines the changes in strategy and tactics of battles as the conflict wore on, with an examination of the April 2, 1865 Petersburg Breakthrough Battle that occurred on our site; and a visit through the National Museum of the Civil War Soldier.

This is a rain or shine event. We suggest wearing comfortable walking shoes, bringing a “brown bag” lunch, and a water bottle. We request that family groups pre-register and pre-pay by calling 804-861-2408.

Standard student group pricing ($11 adults, $9.50 students, free for ages 6 and under)
