You are invited to visit the last surviving 1700's structure of its kind in Virginia's Northern Neck!

The story of this tavern and its relationship to the development of Northumberland County and Virginia's Northern Neck reflects what happened in countless court house villages throughout Virginia and the nation.

The Tavern Foundation (RHHT) would like to welcome you to our website, a visit to part of the historic town square in Heathsville. We are extremely proud of our accomplishments over the years; restoration of a 1795 Court House Tavern, operating Blacksmith Shop, Carriage House, Community Building and Pavilion – all supporting our guilds, restaurant, gift shop and community events and fund raisers.

Our mission is to maintain and operate RHHT to research, interpret and teach its history; and to continue its heritage as a living part of the community.

Upcoming Events

CANCELLED - Saturday, April 18th -- Heathsville Farmers Market, Wine / Brew / Spirits Fest, and more


Due to restrictions regarding COVID19, our season-opening Heathsville Farmers Market on Saturday, April 18th is cancelled.

Earth Day Celebration: We hope to postpone the Earth Day Celebration, which is sponsored by NAPS (Northumberland Association for Progressive Stewardship), to the July 18th Farmers Market. The theme of that market is KIDS DAY, and Earth Day is a very family-friendly activity.

Tavern Quilt Show & Sale: We hope to reschedule this fun event at our October 17th market.

Northern Neck Wine, Brew & Spirits Fest: We also hope to postpone this popular event to our October 17th market. (How does "Alcohol in the Fall: A Spirited Celebration" sound!)

May and June Farmers Markets: We'll have to keep you posted.

We are heart-broken about this chain of events, but are committed to following the recommendations of state and federal health organizations in order to protect everyone's health and well-being.

For more information, call 804-580-3377.
