Several Jamestown families lived in row houses. This row of three houses was occupied at least from 1560 through 1720. Elaborate ironwork found here suggested that the row was handsomely furnished. Perhaps the row was home to the government officials and merchants who prospered in the colony's capital.

A great number of pipestems and wine bottle fragments suggest that in later years, the row might have housed its own tavern, or "ordinary." A wit of the day recorded "about a dozen families getting their livings by keeping of ordinaries at extraordinary rates."
