Uncover History, Clues at Historic Eppington

eppingtonThe Chesterfield County Department of Parks and Recreation is offering two family-friendly programs at Eppington Plantation on Saturdays in September. Eppington was a large tobacco plantation built in 1768 by Thomas Jefferson’s brother-in-law, Francis Eppes VI, and is rarely open to the public.

A tour of the house and grounds of historic Eppington Plantation will be held on September 21 from 10-11 a.m. Experience what plantation life was like in the 1700s. The house features items on display from the Eppes and Hines-Cherry families, as well as agricultural displays. The tour is $8 per person (course 27390).
Another way to explore the house and grounds of the historical plantation is by looking for geocaches. On September 28, from 2-4 p.m., adults and children aged 8 and older can participate in a scavenger hunt to uncover clues about Eppington while learning GPS skills. Garmin hand-held receivers will be provided. The fee is $10 per person (course 27386).
