An Old Virginia Christmas will be held Dec 1, 2012

Volunteers help make park the perfect place to re-live history
An Old Virginia Christmas will be held Dec 1, 2012 3-8PM.

The Booker T. Washington National Monument in Hardy holds events throughout the year. None of these special programs would be possible without the help of volunteers from the Living History Guild and the Friends of the Booker T. Washington National Monument.

One annual event at the park is An Old Virginia Christmas, which will be held Dec. 1 from 3 until 8 p.m. This year, the event focuses on the Christmas of 1862, which is being held in conjunction with the Civil War 150th commemoration. There will be lantern-guided tours and costumed re-enactments to provide visitors a glimpse into the winter of 1862. more here.

Booker T Washington National Monument is just 15 minutes from The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast. It is a worthwhile place to visit and walk in the footsteps of history! Click here for directions and more information about this special event.
