Richmond Discoveries and historic Tanglewood Ordinary Restaurant are teaming up to bring monthly living history dinner events to Goochland County. Each event will feature a prominent figure from history and will provide an entertaining, enlightening and engaging evening. Tanglewood’s famous southern comfort food, served true Family Style, and its historic setting, will complement each special event.
“An Evening With…” will kick off on Thursday, March 15, and will feature James Madison, portrayed by Historical Interpreter Charles Wissinger. The event will showcase Madison's life and stories and weave a living image of the role Madison played in shaping our state, and our nation. Mr. Madison was a native Virginian who was known as the father of the Constitution and the author of the Bill of Rights. A few years later Madison married Dolley Payne Todd, the perfect wife for the introverted Madison. Mr Wissinger will bring these and other stories to life.
Each event will benefit a local community organization. The March event will be held in support of Goochland Pet Lovers, an innovative public/private partnership with Goochland County that is developing a new state-of-the art adoption, care and education center with a commitment to involving the community in saving the lives of companion animals.
