  • 13:00 - 16:00
  • 12601 River Rd, Richmond, VA
The Virginia SAR will commemorate the 278th Anniversary of Thomas Jefferson's Birthday with a wreath laying ceremony on Sunday, April 11th, at Historic Tuckahoe, Thomas Jefferson's boyhood home. This event is sponsored by the Thomas Jefferson chapter and includes a tour of the house and grounds. Come see the house where Jefferson lived and the school house on the grounds where he received his first education. See the attached invitation for more information.


The cost of this event is $10 per person, which covers our use of the property and the discounted group tour rate. This is a special opportunity to see the house and grounds, which are only open for group tours at this time. This is a special SAR group tour at a 50% reduced rate. Normal admission is $20 per person. Funds will be collected onsite on the day of the event.

Check in begins at 1:00pm, the tour will begin at 1:30pm and the outdoor wreath laying ceremony will take place at 3:00pm. You do not have to participate in the tour to participate in the wreath laying ceremony. However, the cost per person applies even if you only participate in the wreath laying ceremony. You are free to explore the grounds on your own after the ceremony.

State limitations on gatherings in Virginia were eased yesterday to 100 for outdoor gatherings and 50 for indoor gatherings. Historic Tuckahoe will break us into smaller groups for the house tour.

To register for this event, email your name, title and chapter to Chapter President David Cooke at xcooke66@gmail.com by Sunday, April 4th stating if you will participate in the tour (yes/no), wreath laying (yes/no) or Color Guard (yes/no)
