We wanted to get a better idea of the Civil War battle fought in the area and the museum at Hupp's Hill does an excellent job. The docent at the museum was especially helpful and the museum had nice historical displays and interesting information.

With so many battles fought in Virginia battlefield sites are not always preserved. But this is a small site with a museum that is an excellent little site. Great movie explaining the battle of Cedar Creek
