Great Hopes Plantation
Discover How Most Virginians Lived at the Time of the Revolution
Become a part of daily plantation life and discover how most Virginians lived—on small plantations outside the city. Interact with farmers and carpenters and hear stories about the life of the enslaved.
Home to many of our rare breeds—including American Milking Red Devon cattle, Ossabow Island pigs, and a variety of chickens and English fowl—the plantation offers guests a unique opportunity to interact with the animals and learn more about them.
On certain days, you may see a live cooking demonstration at this site.
