Most famously noted for the surrender conference of Robert E. Lee to Ulysses S. Grant in the U.S. Civil War, this area's history is remarkable. The surrender occurred at the McLean House, but the surrounding village has been named after the Old Appomattox Courthouse. The area includes these historical buildings, and their preservation stands as a reminder of the Battle of Appomattox Courthouse that occurred during the Civil War.
