Donald Robertson’s School

For years there has been an interest by many historians in the location of the school operated by Donald Robertson in Drysdale Parrish in upper King and Queen County, Virginia during the last half of the 18th Century. It was a prestigious school attended by children who would become prominent leaders during and after the American Revolution. The location was known to be near Newtown, Virginia and historical records report that the building was frame over a brick foundation. Popular local history indicated that portions of a school building remained standing in the early 20th Century. However, prior to May of 2011, no archaeological investigation had been undertaken.
