World-renowned chief Jamestown archaeologist William Kelso has written that,
“I have always thought the Fort Germanna/Enchanted Castle site ranks among the most significant historical archaeological sites certainly in Virginia and arguably in the nation. The establishment of both Jamestown and Germanna forts were historically pivotal.”
Please be our honored guest at a momentous occasion in the history of the Germanna Foundation:
Thursday, October 3, 2013
Germanna Foundation Visitor Center
Locust Grove, VA
Richard V. Hurley, President of the University of Mary Washington, and J. Marc Wheat, President of the Germanna Foundation, will sign agreements for cooperation between the two institutions and, subject to all statutory prerequisites and the terms and conditions of the agreements, to transfer the 62-acre Fort Germanna & Enchanted Castle archaeological site from the University of Mary Washington to the Germanna Foundation. Kathleen S. Kilpatrick, Director, Virginia Department of Historic Resources, will be present to speak about the strategy the Germanna Foundation is undertaking to forever protect where Germanna’s families became American.
With this significant transfer, we now have an important stewardship responsibility to protect, preserve and research the Fort Germanna / Enchanted Castle archaeological site.
Your donations are vital to this effort and needed now more than ever. Please consider donating any amount to help the Germanna Foundation’s good stewardship of Fort Germanna on behalf of yourself and your ancestors. Thank you!
