Bring the family for a great day at Pamplin Historical Park – really interesting and fun activities all day! Meet and chat with George Washington, even take a photo with him. He will talk about the American War for Independence, but he also wants to hear from you. You will also hear about World War I and America’s unprepared mobilization from an American Doughboy and there will be artifacts on display. Citizens of Old Virginia will be playing music and sharing homefront stories from southern and northern perspectives. Find out what games were played during the 19th century; you can try them out, and there will even be a baseball game! Staff will lead tours of the Breakthrough Battlefield, and there will be a ceremony concluding with a cannonfire salute! All of these activities come with the regular Park admission.
