On Saturday, November 5, 2016 Battersea Foundation will host the event Oysters, Barbecue, Battersea! at their site in Petersburg, Virginia.
Battersea is a substantial stuccoed brick house located north of Upper Appomattox Street in the city of Petersburg, near the south bank of the Appomattox River. Even though the 35.5-acre property is bordered by a 19th-century neighborhood and a light industrial area, it still retains its historic rural character. The house on the property is one of the earliest and finest surviving examples of a five-part, Robert Morris-style Palladian house form in the United States, and is the earliest surviving, fully developed example of this house type in Virginia.

The oyster roast will benefit the work of the Battersea Foundation to preserve historic Battersea and offer educational, artistic and cultural experiences that inform, enrich and inspire the public. It will feature live music from Kristie Kream and the Sugar Daddies. Tickets are $40 per person and may be purchased online.
