Here in this museum of ideas, visitors step onto the stage of American history and discover the power and drama of America’s journey for independence and self-government. Highlights of the campus include Washington Hall, inspired by George Washington’s beloved Mount Vernon; the Colonial Courthouse; the Colonial Chapel, inspired by one of America’s oldest churches, Bruton Parish Church of Williamsburg, Virginia; and a full-sized replica of the Oval Office, including an exact replica of the Resolute desk used by most Presidents since Rutherford Hayes. The newest addition to campus is the National Veterans Shrine and Register of Honor, dedicated to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces. The American Village offers a daily public tour in addition to school programming. Customized group tours are also available. Special programs on major national holidays draw thousands of visitors. Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day are among the most meaningful days as the American Village commemorates the country’s founding and the service and sacrifice of those who have defended it.
