Battlefield Preservation, Interpretation, and Restoration

Development of Northern Virginia, specifically outside of Middletown in Frederick County, has threatened the lands of the Cedar Creek Battlefield for decades. The Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation was formed in 1988, to protect lands threatened by development which included the core area of the battlegrounds surrounding the historic Heater House and homestead. Since its formation, preserved lands have grown to include surviving earthworks and a once operational mill property. Occasional land acquisition continues to protect threatened areas. Projects are underway to restore the Heater House and surrounding out buildings of this historic 18th century log cabin homestead. Ongoing interpretive programs of guided tours, interpreted walking or hiking trails, museum exhibits, and living history demonstrations share not only the history of the the Civil War, but also other topics of the Shenandoah Valley's rich history.
