August and September Events and Programs at Powhatan Historic State Park

​Cross Stitch Workshop

​August 28th from 9am to 12pm

​$10 per person

Cross-stitch is not only the oldest form of embroidery, but also one of the easiest to learn. Join the staff at Powhatan Historic State Park to learn about this historic practice and its surprising present-day revival. Participants will learn basic stitch techniques, pattern reading, and will stitch one of several historic or modern patterns of their choosing. Your registration fee provides all materials needed for the class. Space is limited, and reservations are required.

Historic Kids Make and Take 

​September 4th from 9am-11am and 1pm-3pm

​$5 per person

Join the park staff at Powhatan Historic State Park and get hands on as we create some old-time fun in the great outdoors. Participants will be guided in making two historic past-times and learn about what life was like growing up in the late 1800s. Like learning about history? This program is a part of Powhatan’s Living History Academy, a program designed to introduce younger audiences to historic learning experiences that they help bring to life. All supplies are provided, and pre-registration is required as a limited number of spaces is available. To register, call the park at (870) 878-6765 or email us at
