The Bunch of Grapes Tavern stood here during Hampton's heyday as a busy colonial seaport in the 1700s. The tavern, one of three then, served as an inn and meeting place for sea captains, planter and agents from the nearby customhouse where cargoes were registered. In August 1861, Capt. Jefferson C Phillips's Confederate troops burned most of Hampton, along with the Bunch of Grapes, to prevent Union forces at nearby Fort Monroe from occupying the town. Archaeological digs have uncovered thousands of artifacts from the 18th and 19th centuries. The Hampton History Museum displays many of them, including some from the tavern site.
