It’s humbling to reflect on what happened here. The beginning of the end of the Civil War - the history that occurred here almost overwhelming. It’s not the largest place but it’s an important place. It’s a nice and easy walk to see the entire site. If you have any reverence for history this is a must visit. Go enjoy

Who knew?! What a great and interesting stop. Note Court House. This is a location NOT a Courthouse! Thanks to all the National Park volunteers who made my quick visit so interesting.

You can feel the history. You can drive from site to site but at the courthouse site there is a lot of walking and because the buildings are old the steps are steep. it’s free and there are clean restrooms

The site is certainly a must see for students of the Civil War. The park is an easy walk and accessible. The whole place is clean and has excellent staff members to provide living history elements and knowledge about the area and action which took place nearby and within the park itself. Highly recommended.

We stopped here on our trip from Roanoke to Richmond. The light rain and the closed Visitor Center did not hinder our enjoyment of walking ~1/2 mile of this 1800 acre park created in 1954. Important to us were the 1848 McLean House where the actual "surrender" was held and the 1819 Clover Hill Tavern with its printing room (printed 30,000 parole forms for Confederate troops to get home) and its Wall of Honor(pictures of actual soldiers present + artifacts). There were several nice rebuilt houses and courthouse, slave quarters, and a typical barn, then long views of split rail fenced pastures. Great visit.
