After remaining closed for the entire 2020 season, volunteers at Parks-Bentley Place are happy to announce that the historic house is now open on Saturdays from 1 - 4 pm.

We'll still work to keep our volunteers and visitors safe, so we will require that face masks be worn indoors and social distancing be practiced at all events and tours.
