America’s First College 1619

May 25 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

In May 1619, King James I allowed a school to be established in the colony of Virginia. This event will demonstrate and commemorate the charter of America’s first English formal school, called the “College of Henrico,” initially intended for the literacy and vocational training of Powhatan boys. Interpreters will be conducting lectures and living history presentations on how this school affected the lives of both the Powhatans and the English colonists for years to come.

Cost: $9/adult, $7/children ages 3-12; Henricus Patrons: free
