Visit Pamplin Park (by reservation only)

Effective January 2, 2009, Pamplin Historical Park and the National Museum of the Civil War Soldier in Dinwiddie County will be open by reservation only.  Guests wishing to visit the Park may do so by making a reservation forty-eight hours in advance.  Admission fees for non-members will be $100 for a group of up to ten people, and $10 per adult for groups of more than ten.  Park members may make reservations twenty-four hours in advance with no minimum numbers and no admission fee.

    It is not a very good sign at all.

    That is absurd!

    Wow! That’s all I can say. It kinda makes me wonder how many park employees are being laid off. At least they have a heart and they are waiting until after the holidays, but that doesn’t make it any better for those that know they are losing their jobs. If this is happening at a place like Pamplin, can others be very far behind?
