Fork Inn is a restored 14-room tavern built in 1803. It served as a stagecoach stop and was used as a hospital following one of the last Civil War battles. Furnishings are from the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Civil War memorabilia include weapons, personal items, clothing, medical instruments and a Confederate soldier’s wooden leg.
Fork Inn is one of the sites along the 26-stop Lee’s Retreat route from Petersburg to Appomattox Court House National Historical Park.
Each year Fork Inn hosts Southside Virginia Heritage Days in early spring, and a Ghost Tour in October.
