Live three hundred years in one day! During the months of July and August it's all living history all the time at Historic Richmond Town, where costumed interpreters bring the sounds, smells, tastes, and sights of the past to life for visitors. We also offer the opportunity for young people to get their hands on history with engaging educational programs.
Never heard of our apprentice program? Well, the camp has been around for over thirty years and has graduated teens who have gone on to be successful leaders in the community.
