Where does the name New Quarter come from?

In 1723, Robert “King” Carter owned the land. “New Quarter” was one of the “quarters of land” so named by him in his diary. The 545-acre tract, which had been a portion of Camp Peary, was acquired at no cost through the Federal Surplus Land Program in 1976. York County opened New Quarter Park in 1984.
