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.

Upcoming Events

Saturday, December 17th - Men's Shopping Day!

Gentlemen, don't know what to buy your "sweetie" for Christmas? Bewildered men are invited to a special Men's Shopping Day on Saturday, December 17th at the Tavern's "Heritage Arts Center" Gift Shop.

The Tavern "elves" will assist in finding the perfect gift for our male shoppers, and then gift wrap it as well.

The gift shop carries a large variety of Unusual Hand-Crafted Gifts, all created by local artists and artisans. You'll find hand-spun knit lace shawls, hand-woven placemats and tablerunners, quilts, baskets, jewelry, bags and totes, cards, woodenware, cast iron candlesticks, lots of unique decorative arts and much more.

Artisans will also be on hand in their studios. See hand-weaving, spinning, quilting, and more.

Savvy female shoppers  are invited to this event, too, but we find our male customers are particularly staggered by the variety of gift items we sell. We'll make sure they bring home a great gift to put under the tree!

For more information, call 804-580-3377.


Tavern Gift Shop Hours

The Tavern's "Heritage Arts Center" Gift Shop is Open Tuesday thru Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Complimentary refreshments are available. The gift shop is full of unusual hand-crafted items, all created by local artists and artisans.
