Every year the museums at Court End, the area around the court buildings and City Hall, band together to give Richmond a gift for the holidays. This Sunday from 12:00-5:00pm is the 21st Annual Court End Christmas, when everyone is invited for FREE admission and transportation to 9 historic sites:
- The John Marshall House
- Historical Richmond Foundations’ Monumental Church
- Valentine Richmond History Center & Wickham House
- Museum and White House of the Confederacy
- St. John’s Church
- The Beers House
- The Egyptian Building
- Virginia State Capitol
- Hunton Student Center
There is a lot going on — music, cider, carriage rides. For all of the details take a look at the official page for the event.
I have been able to attend the event for the past couple of years, and it’s always nice to see the bustle of families enjoying the historic sites and the Christmas atmosphere, especially with the period costumes and all of the decorations. Enjoy!
