The Battle of the Hook reenactment will again be held on the grounds of Warner Hall. The property dates from 1642 and was originally owned by George Washington's great-great-grandfather.

Warner Hall is located in Gloucester County Virginia, across the York River from Yorktown — where Cornwallis's Main Army surrendered to the French and American Armies under General Washington in 1781. Gloucester County was one of the most populated counties in Virginia at the time of the Revolution and is rich in history. It is also just 30 minutes from Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown.

Today Warner Hall is privately owned and operated as an inn. The property includes the beautifully restored manor house, outbuildings, a dock, the Warner-Lewis family graveyard, and surrounding farm fields.

Listed by both the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Historic Landmarks Commission, Warner Hall continues to be of major architectural and genealogical significance in American history. Warner Hall has long been considered one of the premiere properties in the Virginia Tidewater area.
