Millmont was a featured stop during the 2012 Garden Club tour of Middlesex County, titled “Civil War History along our Waterways”. Built in 1810, Millmont derives its name from its location on a hill (mont) overlooking Mill Creek. The original four-story, one-over-one half frame house was built to take advantage of the spectacular views of the Rappahannock River, Chesapeake Bay and a private pond. Shade trees and gardens dot the long expanse of lawn where a hand-pegged barn is located near the house.

About Preakness Party
The Preakness Party is an event that brings folks together to support the Rappahannock Community College Foundation and all of its efforts to support students.
Why Support the Preakness Party?
The Preakness Party raises funds to support a significant local cause. RCC is the only institution of higher education in a 12-county geographic region that is characterized by: higher poverty; lower income and lower education attainment rates than both the state and the nation. Having a strong, accessible community college in this region is key to ensuring brighter futures for our residents. As you enjoy the festivities, know that 50% of your ticket is a tax-deductible contribution to support the College and its students.
