Visit Custis Square archaeological site in Colonial Williamsburg
Do you have a budding Indiana Jones in your family? A seeker of the past? Then grab your Good Neighbor Pass or get a Colonial Williamsburg Day or Annual Pass and head to S. Nassau Street across from the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg.
Archaeologists at Colonial Williamsburg have recently embarked on a 5-year project investigating the Williamsburg home of Virginia tobacco planter and statesman, John Custis IV. Visit the 4 acre pasture across from the Art Museum of Colonial Williamsburg where Custis home and gardens once stood. Visit the archaeological site, see artifacts as they’re being discovered, and talk with experts in the field.
While you visit you’ll learn about the property’s history, from Custis’ purchase of the land in the early 18th century to its tenure as a recreation space for patients of the Eastern State Public Hospital. Stop by and find out what archaeology can tell us about Custis Square and the people who lived there! Learn more on Colonial Williamsburg’s website.
