Free Admission ALL DAY!
Celebrate our FREE 4th of July in 19th-century style at Historic Locust Grove! Festivities of the day will include two showings of our new Unfolding the Story Tour, walk-throughs of the historic house, a reading of the Declaration of Independence, a reading of “What to the Slave is the 4th of July” by Frederick Douglass, and more.
The Sweet ‘N Savory Food Truck will be on-site for food and drink, or bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on the grounds.
Advanced ticket registration strongly encouraged for the Unfolding the Story as capacity on this tour is LIMITED. Tickets will become available on June 22 and may be reserved HERE.
Please Note—Due to the current construction taking place on-site, parking at Locust Grove will be extremely limited! Additional parking will be available at Dunn Elementary at 2010 Rudy Lane with a free shuttle service provided to Locust Grove. The shuttle will begin at 11:00 am and end at 5:00 pm.
Independence Day at Locust Grove is sponsored in part by Independence Bank.
