George Brent’s Home “Woodstock” Archaelogical Site

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.
