COUNTY MUSEUM MOVING

Lick Run 2

The Spotsylvania County Museum, located at 9019 Old Battlefield Blvd Suite 110, Spotsylvania, VA 22553, will permanently close Wednesday January 29, at 5:00 p.m., so staff can continue the process of moving the museum’s collection to its new home at First Day of Chancellorsville Park, located at 6159 Plank Road, Fredericksburg, VA 22407. 

The new location is on eight acres owned by Spotsylvania County in a park-like setting on State Route 3. The area is buffered by land under the control of the American Battlefield Trust and features wayside exhibits and a hiking trail.  The new site will provide better access for visitors and offer more flexibility, as well as the potential for future expansion. The museum will open in late February 2020 (exact date to be determined) at its new location in the former Lick Run Community Center. A formal grand opening is planned for a later date. 

The museum, which has been located in Merchants Square since 2013, operates in conjunction with Spotsylvania County and the Spotsylvania Historical Association. The museum’s new location will feature 1800-square-feet of exhibits that will offer visitors insight into the history of Spotsylvania County.  It will also feature a space for special exhibits that will rotate on a regular basis, and will be open 7 days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the exception of Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Thanksgiving Day and New Year’s Day. The first rotating exhibit will feature Spotsylvania citizens that have impacted the county’s history.  The county historical collections will also be located on site and will be available to researchers through scheduled appointments.
