A partnership between the American Civil War Center and the National Park Service has established Historic Tredegar as the official Gateway to the Civil War in Richmond.

With cooperation of the Richmond Metropolitan Convention and Visitors Bureau, the eight-acre riverfront site  will serve as the region’s Civil War 150th Visitor Center under the banner, “The Story Starts Here,” officials announced today.

The gateway will orient visitors to historic sites around the region with guidance from park rangers and Civil War Center staff.  A kiosk will offer access to the new www.OntoRichmond.com website set up for the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and Emancipation.
