Have you ever wanted to visit a museum or historical attraction where the artifacts are able to answer your questions? Do you want to travel back to the 18th century to see how different our world was, but not have to give up your phone and electricity? You're in the right place. The past comes alive each and every day and with the chance to choose between the 1 Day Pass, 3 Day Pass, or the 7 Day Pass, you have endless possibilities. You will be able to roam over 300-acres of the Historic Area featuring political sites, historic homes, art museums, Great Hopes Plantation, and so much more. With the 1 Day Pass, guests typically spend the entire day here and wish that they had more time because there is so much to do! For the other two passes, they still usually spend the greater part of their days here. 

The people here are not actors - they live the part and they are skilled at what they do. You'll meet people who built our nation such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry. Learn their history and how their legacy still shapes our world today. You will immerse yourself into an 18th-century city and learn about trades. You'll see the places where they worked and be able to ask any questions that you may have. Some trades that you will learn about and see are blacksmithing, carpentry, tailoring, silversmithing, and shoemaking.
