Host Your Event at Battersea
We would love to talk to you about hosting your next event on our beautiful historic site! Although located in the center of a bustling historic town, Battersea’s 30+ acres are surrounded by forest creating the most peaceful of surroundings. Its rolling lawns offer beautiful vistas of a natural and unchanged colonial estate. Whether it be a wedding, board meeting, school outing, or other gathering, a visit to Battersea is always unforgettable. To discuss your needs contact by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Outreach Initiatives
Until complete, there will be occasions when Battersea’s restoration and grounds restrict access. You can help us provide an enriching experience for those with less mobility by contributing to the purchase of DVDs for handicapped visitors to view work on the second floor.
Battersea needs permanent display cases to house our extensive artifacts on display during events and tours. Currently, we are using display cases on loan through the generosity of the Prince George County Regional Heritage Center.
The richness of Battersea’s architecture provides many opportunities for learning. Help us by sponsoring an intern from one of the area’s high schools or universities to study comprehensive curriculum with some of Battersea’s advisors and experts.
History provides many lessons for today’s children. Battersea will do the same with its outbuildings and its rich archaeological and historical significance, becoming a venue with “natural” classrooms for student enrichment and education. Programs are being developed to highlight periods of Battersea’s history. Summer camps for elementary and middle school-aged children will provide hands-on experiences. Support the curriculum for a learning experience for a child or help underwrite the opportunity for a young aspiring archaeologist to attend a summer camp.
