It was time to scratch my history itch. I love to visit museums. However, they’re all closed due to COVID-19. It’s the weekend of Memorial Day. I had to do something. Curiosity drove me to call the next museum on my list. To hear what the voicemail says. The next museum is the Historic Blenheim House & The Civil War Interpretive Center in Fairfax City, Virginia.

There’s also a fee for group tours| Free Parking | Three buildings on 12-acre grounds.

The voicemail greeting explained the house and center were closed for due to COVID-19. All historical programs at the center are canceled. Event space rentals are not available until further notice. The public is welcome to walk around the buildings was the last point on the message.
I decided to take up the offer and go for a walk!
There’s an interesting display near the entrance. A message from the center staff to all visitors:
There’s also a post on the center’s Facebook page with photos and details about the shoes.
More to come …
