Representatives from the King William Historical Society have announced four dates for the public to participate in an ongoing archaeological dig.
Dr. David Brown, who is leading the project for the KWHS, announced that June 9 and 23 and July 14 and 18 will be days the public can actually participate at what is believed to be the site of the Old Tavern. The hours are 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Don’t forget to invite your friends and especially out-of-town guests to visit the Old Courthouse Complex. The Museum is open by appointment and is filled with treasures of King William County history. A must-see for young and old alike.
Additional Litter Pickup May Involve Crews from MPRSC
Our friends at VDOT do their best to keep up with the many miles of litter that often sprays the landscape this time of the year. Help might be on the way.
The Middle Peninsula Regional Security Center will soon be asking each member jurisdiction to contribute extra funds that would establish road crews to pick up litter. According to Superintendent Timothy Doss, each member jurisdiction would be assigned a specific day of the week that will change periodically. Litter pickup and other projects may be assigned to the crew if the program is approved.
Costs are estimated at just under $29,000 for each locality. The extra fund request will be on a future agenda of the King William Board of Supervisors.
