TOURING THE FORT
A tour of Pricketts Fort is a "must do" for visitors. Family-friendly, live, dramatic tours help visitors understand the essence of 18th century life inside the fort. Costumed interpreters share stories while practicing tradesmen demonstrate blacksmithing, weaving, hearth cooking, gunsmithing and more. The tours include historic buildings, gardens, the grounds and many things of interest to children and adults. Individual and group tours are available.

I have been to Williamsburg, Henricus Park in Richmond, and other sites like yours. I really enjoyed your knowledgeable staff, and that I could freely wander and get up close to your exhibits. The attention to detail and hands-on nature of Pricketts Fort make it stand out. I will be back."
