Antique Adventurers Visit

On May 17, a very cool, bleak and rainy day, approximately 50 ladies from the Antique Adventurers group in Williamsburg spent the morning visiting the Museum, Courthouse Green, and Immanuel Church. The King and Queen County Women’s Club served them a delicious homemade “country” mid-day dinner. They then visited Mattaponi Church where the tour bus got stuck. Their visit ended at the Newington archeological site and Mr. Frank Hurst’s home in conversation with archeologist Ms. Bly Straub about the artifacts and with Mattaponi Chief Custalow about the Mattaponi River. One of the visitors characterized it this way: “The Trip, as I will call it from here to eternity, was the most informative … the beauty of the land, the graciousness of the volunteers and the history they shared was more than anyone could have wished. The added attraction of the super gale, delicious lunch to warm us up, the churches, the log cabin (schoolhouse), the Tavern, every place we visited was adding to the excitement of knowing we were somewhere really special that we really hadn’t known existed within easy reach of Williamsburg.”
