Watch 400 years of history come to life during Publick Days with over 50 interpreters at our living-history museum as we celebrate the founding of Henricus! Explore life in Virginia beginning with the Powhatan Indians and ending with a military timeline through World War I on the bluff. Enjoy living history re-enactments, military drills, cannon and musket firings, 17th-century medicinal demonstrations, historical children’s games, storytelling and more. A display of armor from a private collection will be on display in the church.
