Max Silver Memorial Courtyard

 

Construction of the Essex County Museum’s Max Silver Memorial Courtyard is progressing nicely and, if you walk down Prince Street, you can now see the completed Gazebo and two smaller covered pavilions as well as partially paved walkways and the benches that line them. The outdoor space in the heart of Tappahannock is already being enjoyed by residents and visitors who stroll through the Courtyard on their walks around town.

In the next month, commemorative pavers will be placed, and plaques mounted on benches and in the gardens that recognize community support thus far for the project. Funds are still needed to complete construction and there are many ways for individuals, families, and businesses to support the Courtyard, including naming rights for some of the features as well as the purchase of commemorative bricks that are being used to pave the walkways.

All contributions are appreciated and anyone wishing to donate can do so using the links on this page or mail your gift to:
