Step into the timeline of a history that begins before human habitation and travels through the development of a region that is today home to major industry and high technology. Experience exhibits and displayed artifacts that continue the story of the land that once knew no boundaries, its people, and its community. Set in the Courthouse of 1883, the Center is unique in its presentation of the County’s story and is a great place to begin one’s visit to Prince George.

Sunday, April 29 2:00pm
Thomas Jefferson ordered the construction of this strategic defense while governor of Virginia. First as Hood’s Battery, later Fort Powhatan, it is a remarkable story of endurance and heritage. No one knows the story better than George Fickett who makes a return visit to talk about this Prince George treasure on the James River and the current efforts to protect its long-standing contribution to Prince George history and heritage.
