Carter's Grove Plantation


Route 60 at Pocohontas Trail
Williamsburg, Virginia

Experience history at Carter's Grove Plantation, which was home to some of the very first American settlers. You'll see 18th century life recreated, complete with costumed interpreters who give a tour of the mansion and grounds and explain the role of black slaves on the premises. Challenge your kids to examine the way that life has changed since the days when the plantation was functional. Make history come alive for your children as they bear witness to American life in the 1700s.
