Spotsylvania Court House Historic District
Spotsylvania County proudly shares a distinctive heritage that visitors can experience through our significant sites, markers and battlefields. Be sure to see the Spotsylvania Courthouse District, designated a Virginia Historic Landmark and listed in The National Register of Historic Places in 1983. Four major Civil War battles occurred in Spotsylvania County, and it was the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House that marked the beginning of the fall of the Confederacy.
Today, the Courthouse Village is a lively addition to the District, with its tree-lined brick sidewalks, park benches and lamps that create a neighborhood of times gone by. The Village draws visitors and residents to enjoy its shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as the festivals and entertainment at the Village Pavilion.
The Spotsylvania Courthouse Historic District is the site of several significant buildings and sites. Please download our GIS Tour or brochure (PDF) for a map of the District and more information about the Spotsylvania Courthouse community.
