The Mount Aventine Manor House will be closed for visitors until further notice because of concerns over the safety of visitors and volunteers due to the COVID 19 virus.  Programs scheduled for April and May, including the Spring Tea, will be re-scheduled and new dates posted on the web site as soon as conditions are more clear. In the meantime, enjoy this beautiful park.  Thank you for your consideration.

Keys to History Signage

The Friends of Chapman State Park have installed new interpretative signage—“Keys to History”-- covering the property’s evolution from a 18th century plantation supported by enslaved labor, through the Civil War era, to a 20th century horse breeding farm.  Most of the signage is accessible via an easy walk from the entrance drive.  Others are located at the river front.  Experience this exploration of our area’s heritage

While Mount Aventine manor house remains closed to visitors due to the pandemic, the trails are open and welcoming.  Masks/social distancing are requested.
