THE LANDMARK COLLECTION
A Note from the President
The board of directors has been meeting regularly during this crazy time and we continue to provide support for the Appomattox student internship program which has been successful for many years. Some of the funds that would have gone toward special community events we donated to 4 local food banks and to our public library. We've maintained our membership in the Appomattox & Farmville Chambers of Commerce, and provided contributions to the Appomattox Tourism Committee. We contributed to the Appomattox for Equality organization which produced a series of educational videos for Black History month. We continue to buy from local businesses when purchasing most goods and services. Our donations and grants are down but we're hoping 2022 will be better!
The mission of the Appomattox 1865 Foundation is to enrich the understanding and appreciation of the heritage and significance of Appomattox Court House National Historical Park. The Foundation focuses on efforts to preserve the past, augment financial support, commemorate history and enhance each and every visitor’s experience
