Take a Stroll with a Historian Tour

Sunday, July 12, 2020

There is no better way to experience Yorktown Village than taking a stroll with a professional historian! Tour guides Maureen Wiese and J. Michael Moore of Hampton Roads Tours will provide interesting historical information and insights not typically found in history books.

Following in the footsteps of citizens from the past, travel back in time to the 18th-century while walking in Colonial National Historical Park. The tour begins at Mobjack Bay Coffee Roasters in the Cole Digges House and continues through the grounds of Swan Tavern, down Main Street to the gardens of Gov. Thomas Nelson Jr., and on to the home and grounds of Dudley Digges. This outdoor walking tour will include at least 10 stops in Historic Yorktown, including the Monument to Victory and Alliance. The tour ends back at Mobjack Bay Coffee Roasters, where you are welcome to stay and purchase cold drinks and treats to complete your outing.

Please be aware that this is an outside walking tour with stops along the way. Participants are advised to wear sunscreen, limit the weight of bags, bring a water bottle, and wear comfortable shoes. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Tours are weather permitting. A face mask is required to enter Mobjack Bay Coffee Roasters & Petite Café.

Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic—all York County sponsored and partner community events are subject to postponement or cancellation. This includes changes to dates, times, and locations.
