Carter’s Grove – In Progress

LOCATION

Williamsburg, Virginia

This iconic plantation on the James River served as a private residence from its construction in 1755 until Colonial Williamsburg transformed it into a museum in the 1970s. The property includes a beautiful stretch of James River shoreline, protected natural resource areas, remnants of an 18th century garden on the riverside, and significant archaeological sites. Recently acquired by a private owner to be used again as a residence, a transformation of the gardens and grounds is underway designed to protect and preserve the site’s significant natural and cultural resources but also accommodate the new family in residence.
