Museum of Culpeper History: Culpeper's First Courthouse Marker Dedication

Partner Event
July 7, 2024

113 S. Commerce St
Culpeper, VA 22701

The dedication of the next in a series of markers produced by the Museum of Culpeper History in 2024 will take place at 2:30 PM on Sunday, July 7 at the museum. The public is invited to this event to commemorate the location where much of Culpeper’s early history was set in motion. Significantly, the courthouse was the site of Culpeper’s Stamp Act Protest of 1765, when Culpeper’s justices of the peace unanimously resigned their positions in protest of Britain’s imposition of taxes on the American colonies. In 1774, Culpeper’s citizens held a public meeting in the courthouse and issued the Culpeper Resolves, a public statement in favor of colonial rights and increased colonial cooperation; July 7 will be the 250th anniversary of this event. All are welcome!
