Many of us who live in Hampton Roads woke up to a winter wonderland this morning—complete with icicles and a thick coating of ice on the trees and power lines. In authentic 18th-century fashion, the Historic Area also had to forgo electricity for a couple hours when a transformer blew. But by lunchtime, it was business as usual for just about everyone. So we bundled up, grabbed our cameras, and captured some pretty amazing images to share with you.
Here is a list of what’s open and what’s not. If you do venture out, please be careful. We saw several tree branches crack under the weight of the ice!
- All Exhibition Sites and Trade Shops are open
- All programs are still scheduled
- Raleigh Tavern Bakery will remain closed
- Greenhow, Tarpley, Golden Ball and Mary Dickenson stores are open
- Greenhow Lumber House is open
- Art Museums are open
- No carriage rides
