The History of Jolly's Mill Pond: A tour of a little-known part of Williamsburg.

Jolly’s Mill Pond is our 100-acre tree farm and 50-acre pond just minutes away from Colonial Williamsburg. When my husband and I inherited the property, we unearthed historic documents and journals that point to the unique history of our property.

In its 200-year history, there have been 2 Black owners: the first in 1894 and I became the second in 2011.

To tour will begin the 1850s farmhouse that is being renovated. We will start with a brief history of the house followed by a semi-rigorous walking tour by land.

Then, we'll introduce guests to the history of the free Black farmers who once farmed the land.

As we walk our tree-lined paths to our 1/4-mile dam, we'll share the history of slave labor that was likely used to build the pond’s earthen dam. They will also see the massive scar on the hillside where they carved out dirt by hand.

They will walk the dam and take in scenic views of the pond and see the footprint of its 19th-century grist mill.

They will also learn about our multistory bald cypress trees that predate the pond and are being studied by the College of William & Mary and the EPA.

We'll conclude our tour with refreshments.

Because this is private property, guests can only experience this tour with us, the owners.
