Retreat to Green Spring
235th Anniversary of the Battle of Green Spring
Colonial National Historical Park wishes to extend an invitation to the public to visit historic Green Spring near Jamestown, in James City County. The site was formerly the residence of Sir William Berkley, Governor of Virginia in 1641.

On the 9th of July, the plantation site will be open to the public. Visitors will have a rare opportunity to walk the grounds of a once prominent estate, and in the footprints of Major Generals Lafayette and “Mad” Anthony Wayne, heroes of the American Revolution.
Colonial National Historical Park has arranged, with the assistance of the Friends of Green Spring, Rangers and volunteers to conduct tours of the site. There will be displays and demonstrations reminiscent of the period, such as musket demonstrations, cannon demonstrations, and a military medicine program as well. In addition, Eastern National will have a small sales area for park-related purchases.
Access to the site will only be permitted via a free shuttle that will begin at 9:00 am, leaving from the National Park Service Neck of Land facility (near kilometer marker K32 on the Colonial Parkway) and Historic Jamestowne Visitor Center parking lot. Shuttles will run regularly through 4:30 pm. Advance reservations are not available, and “first come, first served” is the order of the day. Water and rest facilities will be available at the site. It is recommended that visitors bring a snack or lunch as food will not be available. Sunscreen and insect repellent is highly recommended.
