10 FUN THINGS TO DO IN WILLIAMSBURG VA
Freedom Rides Museum
The Freedom Rides Museum gives an excellent insight into the brave peaceful protest of the Freedom Riders and is told through a series of art works, displays and biographies of key leaders and players within the movement.
Dexter Avenue Baptist Church
Our tour of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church has been one of our favorite tours so far on our US road trip. The Dexter Avenue Baptist Church was built in 1883 and quickly became an important worship and meeting place of the African community.
Dexter Ave Parsonage Museum
Do you want to see the home that Dr. Martin Luther King and his family lived in during his years as a pastor at the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church? This modest but cute clapboard cottage is in Centennial Hill, which was once a vibrant middle-class African suburb.
Civil Rights Memorial
The Civil Rights Memorial is the best place to visit after you have seen the other Civil Rights Trail experiences. There is a beautiful memorial out the front, designed by Maya Lin, the same designer of Washington’s Vietnam memorial.
Rosa Parks Museum
See where the Civil Rights Movement began at the Rosa Parks Museum. They bring the story alive through an interactive display, 3D re-enactments, and gospel music setting the scene. The Museum is located in the spot where Rosa Park was arrested.
