provides fascinating insight into the lives of some of early Quakers who settled the Jamestown area from the 1700s through the mid 19th century. For example, one of only 3 of the false...More

Allow about 90 minutes for the regular tour, but Shawn Rogers, the Director, will be glad to show you around as long as you like. I advise calling in advance to book a tour, otherwise Shawn may be busy with others. There are also several good local restaurants less than a mile away in the middle of Jamestown, including Southern Roots, Sid Wills, and Full Moon Oyster Bar.
