Tuckahoe Field Trip April 24th


Our friends at Jefferson’s Poplar Forest still have room on a fantastic field trip to Jefferson’s boyhood home of Tuckahoe.  Make your plans soon as space is limited!

A group of Poplar Forest Docents are planning a trip to Tuckahoe Plantation on April 24th.  Tuckahoe is rarely open, but is allowing tours a few days next week in conjunction with Historic Garden Week. Thomas Jefferson spent his youth at Tuckahoe and received his first education in the small one-room school house that still stands today.

The trip will include a stop in Charlottesville for a guided tour of Jefferson’s Academical Village. The cost for the bus transportation is $22/pp plus you will have to buy an admission ticket to Tuckahoe which is available online for about $11. We are planning a stop at Short Pump Mall where a variety of lunch options are available.

You and any companion you wish to join you are welcome.
If you are interested in joining us on the 24th please contact Jack Thompson as soon as possible at 434-386-0388 or  Seats are limited so if you are interested please let us know as soon as you can.
The bus will leave from Poplar Forest around 7AM and possibly make one more stop in Lynchburg to pick up additional passengers as needed.  We expect to be back in Lynchburg around 6:30PM.
