Huguenot Settlement Marker, O-33

Huguenots, the largest single group of French Protestant refugees to come to Virginia, settled near here on the site of a deserted Monacan Indian village during the period 1700-1701. In 1700, the Virginia General Assembly established King William Parish, also known as Huguenot Parish. The Huguenots established a church at this site now known as the Manakin Episcopal Church.
