Take a guided tour through Custis Square, where archaeologists have embarked on a 5-year exploration of the 4-acre home and early 18th century gardens of John Custis IV. Learn about his time in the burgeoning capital city of Williamsburg and what our previous excavations have revealed about the wealthy planter and statesman—and talk with archaeologists in the field about what we’re learning from the current project! Site tours meet at the gate at the corner of Francis and Nassau Streets. Tours begin at 9:30am, 11:00am, 1:30pm, and 3pm. Capacity for each tour is limited to 10 guests.
Children must be accompanied by an adult. Weather permitting.
