You are invited to visit the last surviving 1700's structure of its kind in Virginia's Northern Neck!

The story of this tavern and its relationship to the development of Northumberland County and Virginia's Northern Neck reflects what happened in countless court house villages throughout Virginia and the nation.

The Tavern Foundation (RHHT) would like to welcome you to our website, a visit to part of the historic town square in Heathsville. We are extremely proud of our accomplishments over the years; restoration of a 1795 Court House Tavern, operating Blacksmith Shop, Carriage House, Community Building & Pavilion – all supporting our guilds, restaurant, gift shop and community events and fund raisers.

Our Mission is to maintain and operate RHHT to research, interpret and teach its history; and to continue its heritage as a living part of the community.
