This well was in use in the first quarter of the 17th century, dating to the early years of Jamestown. When no longer usable, wells were used as a place to put garbage. This added many unwanted item, mixing with the few items that had been unintentionally dropped into the well while it was in use.

The recovered artifacts and a model of this well can be seen in the Archaearium.
