George Brent’s Home “Woodstock” Archaelogical Site
January 29, 2014 | Stafford County Museum
George Brent’s home “Woodstock” was located a stone’s throw from the Brent Cemetery near Route 1 and the Crucifix. Now it is an archaeological site, that discloses the fireplace hearth. Due its location close to a marsh and mosquitoes, George Brent and his family rebuilt/relocated “Woodstock” on the hill located in today’s Aquia Harbour.
