African American Heritage Society at Bacon's Castle
Slave Dwelling Project
Preservation Virginia’s Bacon’s Castle is proud to work with national, regional and local partners in presenting this important and provocative presentation on the institution of American slavery and how preserving the Site’s last remaining slave quarters is an important project in preserving an African American heritage structure and educating generations to come on this part of our history. Join us and Mr. Joe McGill at Bacon’s Castle on October 6, 2012. Please inspect and share this flyer on the Project. See you on the 6th!
School Field Trips
As the 2012/2013 school season is upon us, we look towards showcasing the 40-acre historic site as a must see destination in presenting early Virginia and American history to students from all over the Country. We have a couple school systems already booked for this Autumn and look forward to serving more systems in the near future.
We cordially-invite government, business, and tourism leaders, school group field trip coordinators, and tour operators to schedule complimentary private group tours of the Castle to learn more about of our exciting five-year plan and new educational offerings. In providing these FAM tours, we hope to introduce a new generation of stakeholders and advocates to our super rare and precious historic treasures. We have FAM tours scheduled for this Autumn with group tour operators, motor coach companies, and Virginia Tourism Corporation representatives. Our hope is through these efforts we will enter 2013 with a more energized community and knowledgeable clientele ready to book their next, must see tours at Preservation Virginia’s Bacon’s Castle! Give us a call, follow-us on Facebook, and keep in touch with us. Re-familiarize yourself with your Bacon's Castle!
