“BATTLE OF RICHMOND REENACTMENT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

In late August they have a Civil War Reenactment Battle on the battlefield which is near the Visitor Center. The Visitor Center is a mini museum with videos, a digital battle map and displays. Phllip Seyfrit is the Visitor Center Mgr and has vast knowledge of this battle and others. You can get driving tour information and brochures on many of the generals and other involved. They have reduced hours during the winter.

“Well preserved battlefield”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

This is a beautiful and well-preserved historic site with good, not great, interpretation. Most of what you see is on a well-marked walking trail. I visited before the visitor's center actually opened, so I can't comment on it. The park itself is definitely worth seeing. Expect a little hiking.

“Very Interesting even for the non history buffs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

We stopped in here it's a big brick house. It has modern lazer map that goes along with a video. The gentlemen Paul I believe was his name was great. He made the house even more interesting he was very informative gave our boys pens and had a great sense of humor. He also had family history in this house and his family with the war in that area.

“Great place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

The visitor center is a wonderful place to visit. It has modern interactive technology that takes you back to the battle. Dr. Paul and Phillip are very knowledgeable about the battle and time period. Definitely worth a stop.

“Wrong Location in Google Maps”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We almost missed this place. The location is totally wrong in Google Maps (someone noted below, it is wrong in Streets and Trips also). It is definitely worth a 1 - 2 hour stop. There are several movies worth watching, but the Laser Map Display is really great.
