Travel Agency
“Blandford Church is a rare American treasure. It is one of the few churches whose decorative stained-glass windows were completely designed and installed under the direction of Louis Comfort Tiffany of New York. The Church’s fifteen exquisite windows were commissioned by the Ladies’ Memorial Association of Petersburg in memory of the Confederate soldiers buried at the adjacent Blandford Cemetery. From 1901 to 1912, Tiffany and his team of artists designed, created and installed the windows, which were financed by contributions from each of the Confederate states in honor of their war dead. A guided tour of the Church reveals its history as an 18th century Anglican house of worship, its eventual abandonment and fall into disrepair, its use as a field hospital during the Siege of Petersburg, and its restoration by the Ladies Memorial Association as a shrine to the South’s “Lost Cause.” Blandford Cemetery, one of the oldest and largest in America, is resting place of some 30,000 Confederate soldiers who lost their lives during the Siege of Petersburg. A tour includes monuments and tombs of the Confederate dead, and outstanding examples of eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth-century gravestones, sculptures and decorative iron fences.”

“Beyond just producing honey, the Haley family has opened a small urban meadery in downtown Hopewell. What is mead? It is a very old alcoholic drink that is fermented honey mixed with fruits or herbs to produce different flavors. The Haleys produce one basic batch at a time which is fermented into 5 different batches, each with a distinctive flavor, and a heavy emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. Try a tasting flight to experience the differing flavors.”
