One of the most popular features of the Historic Polegreen Church site is the Timeline of Religious Freedom. The Timeline is a long brick walkway leading to the original church's structure. The walkway is inlayed with markers listing the most important dates over two millennia in the history of the struggle for religious freedom.
Many of our visitors — especially students — find the Timeline to be a real eye-opener. A common assumption is that “religious freedom” is exclusively an American creation. But the reality is those freedoms represent hard-fought struggles that emerged over centuries of sacrifice and hard work.
Visitors to the historic Polegreen Church site can now take a tour of the site using their cellular phone. By calling (804) 205-9836, Dr. Dan Roberts of the University of Richmond and host of National Public Radio's "A Moment in Time" will guide you through the history and significance of Polegreen Church. You can listen to this virtual tour by choosing one of the segments below. All files are in mp3 format.
Historic Polegreen Church met its demise during the Battle of Totopotomoy Creek in late May, 1864.
