Historic Sandusky will be open for volunteers who would like to help maintain and preserve the landmark, as well as have tours of the historic home, during the Civil War Trust’s annual Park Day event Saturday, April 2.
Park day brings together history buffs, community leaders, and preservationists to answer the call to service at more than 125 sites in 29 states. Celebrating its twentieth year, Park Day has attracted volunteers of all ages and abilities bound by their dedication to serving their communities at historic sites nationwide.
In Central Virginia, Historic Sandusky will host a Park Day event beginning at 9 a.m.
Volunteers can help with yard work, painting, cleaning, and light maintenance. Refreshments will be provided, and volunteers will be able to tour the historic home for free.

The Civil War Trust is the largest and most effective nonprofit organization devoted to the preservation of America’s hallowed battlegrounds. Although primarily focused on the protection of Civil War battlefields, through its Campaign 1776 initiative, the Trust also seeks to save the battlefields connected to the Revolutionary War and War of 1812. To date, the Trust has preserved close to 43,000 acres of battlefield land in 23 states. For a complete list of participating Park Day sites, visit Civilwar.org/parkday.
