Carters Grove Plantation

Carter's Grove plantation is a five-minute drive from Williamsburg.

Above the James River, is the Georgian mansion was built in 1755 by Carter Burwell, one of colonial Virginia's richest landowners. On the way to the house, there is a working slave quarter. Narrators can tell about plantation life and visitors can see their quarters and gardens.

There is also an archaeological site at Carter's Grove. On this land the little-known English settlement of Wolstenholme Towne existed as early as 1619. The treasure from these digs is on exhibition at the Winthrop Rockefeller Archaeology Museum.
