A Roof Above My Head – Construction of an Early Soldier’s House

Ever wonder how the timber post and beam structures you see at Henricus Historical Park were built? Come to “A Roof Above My Head” - our program that explores how skilled carpenters, sawyers, and woodsmen arriving from England 400 years ago constructed houses, churches, and more - all without recourse to modern power tools. Registration required by March 19 by calling 748-1611.  This is a hands-on experience and you will get dirty!
