Hunter’s Island Magical History Tour

April 27 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

When Capt. John Smith explored the Rappahannock River in 1608, he was met at the fall line in Fredericksburg by a hail of arrows from native fishermen. Explore the legacy of Hunter’s Island with its owner, local architect and history enthusiast Mary Ellen Wheeler.

Bring a bag lunch for a picnic. Minimum age is 8 years.

Participants will meet at Friends of the Rappahannock, take a short paddle across the river to the island, and then hike around the island.

Event tickets will be available through the Virginia Outdoor Center by March 15.
