Inscription.  The Fairfield Foundation is renovating the Timberneck House (c. 1800) as a place for learning, lodging, and exploring Virginia’s Middle Peninsula. As a not-for-profit organization we are dedicated to promoting and involving the public in hands-on archeology, preservation and education activities on the Middle Peninsula and in surrounding areas.

Exhibits in the house will feature stories about the history and perseverance of Virginia Indians, the history of Timberneck Farm and displays that highlight many local sites of interest in and near Gloucester County. The house will also offer lodging options for visitors to the park.

You are invited to get involved in the process of preserving this spectacular building. Visit our website and follow us on social media to learn more.
