The Presidents Heads Walking Tour

  • The Presidents Heads 8201 Liberty Live Church Croaker, Va. (map)

Interested in seeing the now iconic and internationally popular decaying Presidents Heads? Take advantage of this opportunity before they are shipped away from Virginia later this year. This will be one of a handful of opportunities in the coming months to legally tour the grounds of these crumbling statues in the absence of any organized photo shoots. With full permission from the landowner, you will have a 3 hour window to visit these relics up close and personal to grab one last glimpse of them before they leave us. Apart from a 5-10 minute history on the Heads which will be delivered at 2PM, the rest of the afternoon is an unguided 3 hour window of time for you to roam the grounds of the Heads.

We will meet at the Liberty Live Church 8201 Croaker Rd. in Williamsburg, Va. between 1:30-2:00PM on Sunday 5/26 for a quick introduction, then proceed across the street to the Heads. If you arrive after 2PM, please email me at “” and I will give you instructions on where to meet us.

Bring shoes that can get wet and muddy. Bug spray is also a good idea due to the presence of summertime mosquitoes.

If you are on the list of those that pre-ordered a copy of “A Beautifully Broken Virginia” from my website during the Month of May Promotion , just bring your receipt (either printed or on your phone) and you can get free access

Tickets are non-refundable. In the event of a cancellation due to severe weather, rain checks will be issued and you will be notified by e-mail. I will also notify guests via this website and at John Plashal Photo on Facebook.

Cameras and drones are permitted.

Children 5 and under are free.

The area in which the Heads reside is non-hospitable to those in wheelchairs or with walkers, canes or motor scooters.

Dogs are allowed but must be on a leash. There are roaming roosters on the grounds.
