Talk with archaeologists in the field about the history of Custis Square, earlier excavations that helped to inform our understanding of the Custis family, and current project goals. Meet Custis’ best-known relative, Martha Washington, and her new husband, George, as they explore Martha’s inherited property at Custis Square.
