Historic Homes Across Virginia to Open Free to the Public September 14-15

RICHMOND – In celebration of the Executive Mansion’s 200th Anniversary, Governor Bob McDonnell and First Lady Maureen McDonnell designated 2013 the “Year of the Historic Home.” As a part of that effort, exclusively during the weekend of September 14 and 15, 2013, many of Virginia’s renowned historic homes and museums will be open admission-free to the public. Visitors just need to click HERE to print their ‘passport’ for free admission to the participating sites.

 

            “We are thrilled with the excitement surrounding the Year of the Historic Home,” said First Lady Maureen McDonnell. “The spring success of the Historic Home Promotional Weekend in Richmond came as a pleasant surprise and we are looking forward to promoting this initiative in September across the Commonwealth. We encourage you to print your passport and visit these historic sites, which have been home to many of America’s Founding Fathers, U.S. presidents, and many other significant figures.”

 

            There are over 120 sites across Virginia classified as Historic Homes that span from pre-Colonial times through the Modern era, all of which provide an abundance of cultural, historical, and architectural information and promote an understanding of, as well as an interest in, Virginia’s story.

 

            To further promote the Year of the Historic Home effort, in the spring of 2013, seven historic homes across Richmond came together in a collaborative effort to open their doors admission-free to the public for an entire weekend to “Time Travel through Virginia History.” Because of the successes and benefits experienced from the spring promotional weekend, over 50 homes throughout Virginia are coming together to offer free access to the public for the weekend of September 14 and 15. 

 

            A list of the participating homes follows. For specific details of each home, as well as their hours of operation on September 14 and 15, please visit the Virginia Historic Home website athttp://www.historicalhomes.virginia.gov/. Click on the “time travelers” link while on the site and print your passport in order to be granted free admission.
