CHESTER, Va. (WWBT) - In conformity with CDC and Chesterfield County guidelines, the Henricus Historical Park is anticipating to reopen to the public on Wednesday, June 3.

The open-air, living history museum, Henricus Historical Park is well-positioned to welcome back visitors in a safe and fun environment.

Measures will be taken to ensure the safety of both visitors and Henricus staff. Visitors are strongly encouraged to wear masks and make payments by credit card.

There will be a one-way travel pattern that will be utilized to manage visitor flow while in the historic site. Rope and natural barriers will be installed to create a buffer between interpreters and visitors.

It’s a balance, but one that our professional team at Henricus has rehearsed and is well prepared to execute for the benefit of the public. I hope folks will seize the opportunity to get out of the house and take in some history while enjoying the scenic beauty of Henricus and Dutch Gap.”
