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.

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.
