Yorktown 1776! Founding Fathers Walking Tour of Yorktown Village

Saturday, July 3, 2021

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

Celebrate Independence Day with a walk through Yorktown and learn about the residents who influenced the founding of our country. This tour will include a visit to the grave of a signer of the Declaration of Independence, a stop at the property of one of the leaders of the new government in Virginia, and a stop at the location where the Virginia Militia lived and trained from 1776 until the Siege of Yorktown. Other important residents will also be discussed.

Attendees must be able to walk at a leisurely pace for an hour, with stops along the way. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
