Wagon Ride Through History at York River State Park

A little known page in American History is the Taskinas Plantation. The tobacco farm was established by Richard Clarke in 1660. The land exchanged hands to William Morris in 1720 and John Blair in 1750 who's son, John Jr, was a signer of the Constitution. Our staff archealogist, Jerome Traver, has discovered the ruins of plantation seats, slave quarters, a fort dating back to Bacon's Rebellion, and several artifacts in our Visitor's Center. York River State Park has a "Wagon Ride Thru History" every second Saturday from May until August.  For more information, please call[masked] or e-mail [masked]. http://www.virginiaoutdoors.com/article/more/3805

The ride begins at 1:00 PM and lasts approximately 2 hours.  The cost is $3.  You will need to call the park to make your reservation.

    I apologize for the weather. We do have another Wagon Ride program scheduled for Saturday, July 13th (there is plenty of shade along the trail and few mosquitoes). I will set this up shortly. Thank you so much for your interest.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
