The KBA is a non-profit 501(c)3 all volunteer corporation whose mission is to protect and interpret this Civil War battlefield for the benefit of future generations.

The Kernstown Battlefield will fully open for the 2020 season on Friday, July 3rd.   The Battlefield, the site of three Civil War battles between 1862-1864, will continue to be open on Saturdays, Sundays, and Holidays, from 10am-4pm, through Sunday, November 1, 2020. 


Since March, the Kernstown Battlefield has been open only for outdoor activity and exercise.  Now, in compliance with the Governor’s Executive Order # 67, the Pritchard House, with a new field hospital display, our Visitor Center, and Artillery Shed, will be open for viewing and battlefield tours can be requested. 


We ask that Visitors maintain the 6-foot Social Distancing and we have to limit Tour Groups to no more than 10 people.  Masks must be worn while in our buildings.  KBA Volunteers and Docents will also be on the premises during the open hours to assist in your visit. 

OUR ASSOCIATION is proud to be recognized as the gold sponsor for the Blue Ridge Kiwanis annual golf tournament.
