I love this place, I go there all the time. It's full of Civil War history and artifacts, and Mr. Newton is really nice and helpful to answer all my questions. I suggest you visit the museum before the Battlefields. Jo C.

If you are not already a history buff, you will not know what you are looking at. No guided tour, but they did ask if we had questions. Cost is not free, so be expected to pay all little.

A must visit for civil war buffs! Especially those interested in the encampments throughout Stafford County! Mr. Newton is very knowledgeable and spent a good deal of time discussing specific locations of encampments throughout the area!

A very interesting museum with lots of civil war relics. Many units camped in Stafford county during the winter of 1862-63. Mr. Newton was very helpful in telling us where the 1st corps camped, drew us maps and was a wealth of information.
