Students visited historic sites such as the Governor's Palace and the Capitol building, where they were able to show what they have learned about Virginia's roles in the American Revolution and the creation of our country. At the Courthouse, teachers like Mrs. Fay stood trial (but was found 'not guilty' of all charges.)


A few student favorites were learning to juggle, the maze, and the Governor's Palace. In addition, students toured the magazine (where gunpowder and weapons were stored) and the jail (where they learned that Blackbeard the Pirate's crew had been imprisoned!) Students also visited the shops and stores along Duke of Gloucester Street and saw wig makers, blacksmiths, silversmiths, printers and many other artisans in action!
