The society hosts events and programs to recount the city's formative events and explore its iconic buildings, whose eclectic mix of architecture styles were featured in Steven Spielberg's Academy Award–winning historical drama, Lincoln.
Historic Sites and Sights
Peter Jones Trading Station: Although it's now a handful of freestanding stone walls and a chimney, this oft-reconstructed building began as one of the original structures in the Fort Henry trading complex.
Siege Museum: The Exchange Building—a registered national historic landmark—currently houses a museum documenting the lives of Petersburg citizens during the Civil War.
South Side Depot: Originally built around 1854, this depot is the oldest railroad station in Virginia.
Centre Hill Mansion: Three US presidents—John Tyler, William Howard Taft, and Abraham Lincoln—visited this stately home overlooking the Appomattox River.
Blandford Cemetery: With marked gravestones dating as far back as 1702, the cemetery serves as the final resting place for a British general from the American Revolution, three Civil War generals, and two Virginia governors, among others.
The White House of the Confederacy constituted the social, political, and military headquarters of Confederate States of America President Jefferson Davis during the Civil War. Later named a National Historic Landmark, the building still stands today. Daily guided tours lead guests through the grand 19th-century structure, which houses more than half its original wartime furnishings.
The White House is only steps away from The Museum of the Confederacy's Richmond location, where a core exhibit chronicles the Confederacy from its beginnings to General Robert E. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox. Opened 25 years after that fateful event, the nonprofit museum displays artifacts from a collection of more than 15,000 items. They include Stonewall Jackson's sword, a letter from Pope Pius IX, and all the pennies Jefferson Davis etched his face onto in his spare time.
Meanwhile, another 400 artifacts adorn the permanent exhibit at the museum's Appomattox location. Here, a dozen audiovisual stations, parole lists, and the uniform coat worn by Lee illustrate the event that brought the Civil War to a close.
