2019 Sweeney Summer Concert Series

Thank you for join us in celebrating the musical history of Appomattox County with the 2019 music series on the McLean House porch! These talented musicians donated their time to help us raise funds to continue our mission to highlight musical history in the Charles Sweeney Cabin.

We continue to offer a variety of programs and events and support those in the Park.  This year our goal is to complete restoration and enhance the visitor experience at the Sweeney Cabin and to educate visitors on the significance of this place.  Our park saw the birth of a new musical genre and we plan to celebrate and honor those individuals who were responsible. Some of our efforts include the following:

SWEENEY CABIN RESTORATION CAMPAIGN - FUNDRAISING EFFORTS will focus on

  • INSIDE DISPLAYS/SIGNAGE

  • SOLAR POWERED WAYSIDE (YOU’LL BE ABLE TO HEAR THE MUSIC)

  • IMPROVED ACCESS AND PARKING TO THE CABIN AND TRAILS
