Carter’s Grove–More Changes

Posted by on April 1, 2015
In 1976 evidence of a small settlement wiped out in the 1622 Massacre was discovered on the front lawn near the river. This settlement conflicted with Colonial Williamsburg's emphasis on the 18th century, but they tried to accomodate with a partial reconstruction of the settlement's fort (see first picture below). At the same time they reconstructed slave quarters from the 18th century and added an underground archaeology museum. The purpose was to showcase 400 years of occupation of the site, but it all  closed in 2003. Also that year, Carters Grove played the role of a South Carolina cotton plantation and military hospital in the movie Cold Mountain (second picture; click to enlarge). CG&WolColdMtn.jpg
