The Park’s Tudor Hall Plantation is featured in the Petersburg-Dinwiddie County tour on April 24 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This event is held in conjunction with the Petersburg Garden Club.

Tudor Hall, built circa 1812, has been carefully restored to its wartime appearance and furnished with period antiques. The dwelling was home to the Boisseau family, ancestors of the Pamplins, and from October 1864 to March 1865 served as military headquarters for Confederate General Samuel McGowan.
The plantation also features a reconstructed working kitchen and slave quarter, a kitchen garden with authentic period plantings, and reconstructed livestock and tobacco barns.
