Ben Lomond: Opening of the Pringle House Hospital Exhibit

21 May 2011 - 22 May 2011

Ben Lomond Historic Site
10321 Sudley Manor Road

Admission: Free

Join us as we re-open the newly refurbished Ben Lomond Historic Site as the Pringle Hospital. The house has undergone a transformation back to July of 1861 when it became a Confederate hospital after the battle of First Manassas. The new exhibits will chronicle the hectic and traumatic experiences of the medical staff, soldiers, and civilians who occupied the hospital.

Program will include living historians, slave life interpretation, medical demonstrations, original medical displays, and hands-on educational tent. Ribbon-cutting ceremony begins at 10:00 a.m.
