Explore the history of the Spanish-American War at Rippon Lodge Historic Site. Speak with living history interpreters about the war, what the soldiers encountered, and see artifacts of the era. Considered to be a forgotten war, the Spanish-American War began in 1898, and was a war many initially did not comprehend or want. However, the tide soon turned and many regiments in Virginia were soon preparing to fight.
Tours of the historic lodge will be available, $5 per person, limited to 7 people at a time. Self-guided. Masks are required indoors.
