Prior to the Civil War, the village of Appomattox Court House was a quiet, peaceful community. In the center of the village stood the courthouse building, surrounded by the old jail, Clover Hill Tavern, Meeks General Store, the small office of a local attorney and many private residences. The village of Appomattox Court House was served by the railroad, located approximately three miles away in what was then a small town named Nebraska, Virginia. Years after the surrender was signed at the McLean House, the village was relocated to the area known as Nebraska; the name was changed to Appomattox, and the town business activity began to grow, centered on the commerce provided by the railroad depot.
The original village of Appomattox Court House sat unattended for years until the National Park Service determined to acquire the site and preserve it in it’s entirety. Today the Appomattox Court House National Historical Park stands as a monument to the Civil War, and the surrender which reunited our nation.
The present day town of Appomattox continued to grow into the picturesque community we enjoy today. With its 44 “turn of the century” homes, Court House Square, the Appomattox County Historical Museum, Monument Circle, the renovated Depot housing the Visitor Information Center, quaint shops, charming Bed and Breakfasts and down home eateries, Appomattox offers an unparalleled experience in true southern hospitality.See Inns in and near Appomattox: Downtown | 1 Mile | 5 Miles | 15 Miles | 25 Miles | 50 Miles
