Custis Square Archaeology Project

Self-guided Sites

CW Admission Required

Come and see what's new at Custis Square! Archaeologists are in the midst of a 5-year project investigating the Williamsburg home of Virginia plantation owner and statesman, John Custis IV. 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! This self-guided program is open to visitors of all ages, but children must be accompanied by an adult. Guests may enter the site at corner of Nassau and Francis Streets. The terrain is grassy and may be difficult to access by wheelchair. Weather dependent.
