The City Point Early History Museum displays exhibitions highlighting the rich history of the area. It is housed in the St. Dennis Chapel in the National Historic District of Hopewell. This district contains a number of historic structures, including Appomattox Plantation, the headquarters of General Grant during the latter stages of the Civil War.

The chapel was constructed in 1887 as a Catholic chapel for Navy personnel in the area. In 1981 the building, at that point a private home, was deeded to HHF. The building was restored and opened to public in 1995.  Please call 804-458-4682 to set up an appointment to tour the museum.

The City Point Early History Museum is currently under renovation.  No tours are available at this time.
