Historic London Town


Over three hundred years ago, the colonial tobacco port town of London was bustling with activity as ships carrying trade goods stopped at the site of an active ferry crossing… and then it all but disappeared. Discover the once “lost town” for yourself through William Brown House (c.1760), a National Historic Landmark, and reconstructed colonial buildings. Bring your family (and dogs) to also enjoy scenic river views, 10 acres of woodland and ornamental gardens and a Sound and Sensory Garden for kids. London Town has free parking and is pet friendly!
