In 2011, The Friends commissioned an interactive kiosk to tell the stories of Historic Green Spring in words, pictures and videos. The kiosk was installed at the Historic Jamestowne Visitor Center and dedicated to the late Clifford Williams, founder of The Friends of Green Spring. When it is not at Jamestowne, the portable kiosk can be taken to schools, retirement communities, libraries and special events. Please contact us if you are interested in having the video visit your organization or event.
The 2011 lecture was presented by Warren Billings, author of Sir William Berkeley and the Forging of Colonial Virginia. In an entertaining and informative program, Prof. Billings gave new insight into what little is known about the man behind Bacon’s Rebellion.
Historic Green Spring is closed to the public, but every year since 2009, The Friends, in cooperation with the National Park Service, have opened the site to the public on one Saturday in October. This is a family-oriented opportunity to stroll the grounds with Governor and Lady Berkeley and experience what life and the people were like in the 17th and 18th centuries. Programs and activities differ from year to year, and include children’s activities.
