Washington County Mask Mandate and the Heritage Alliance

In observance of Washington County Executive Order No.2, a Face Covering is REQUIRED inside the Chester Inn Museum and our office at the Duncan House for all visitors who can safely wear one and are 12 years of age and older.

The Chester Inn Museum and Duncan House are enclosed spaces where six feet of distance cannot be guaranteed. If you do not have a Face Covering, we have Masks available inside the Museum and our office for a $1.00 donation to the Museum and our educational programs. If you do not have a Face Covering and want to purchase Town/Cemetery Tour Tickets, call the Museum at 423-753-4580, and we can meet you outside to complete the transaction.

Since the tours take place outside where adequate distancing can be achieved, a face covering is recommended  but optional. At this time, all tours are limited to ten people. You can contact us in advance to reserve your spot for a tour.

This mandate is in effect from July 14 – August 3, 2020.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to keep our staff, volunteers, and visitors safe.
