When complete, the 54-mile-long shared-use trail will highlight the rich historic, cultural and environmental assets along the Route 5 Virginia Byway – the corridor of America’s first westward expansion and the oldest inland transportation route in North America. Upon completion, the trail will feature interpretive sites with information kiosks and bicycling and pedestrian amenities to accommodate users of all ages and abilities.

In Williamsburg, the trail begins at the Governor’s Mansion and follows the Colonial Parkway to Jamestown Island, the site of the first permanent English settlement in the New World. The trail then turns west, crossing the Chickahominy River, running through historic Charles City County, passing original James River plantations, the homes of Presidents John Tyler and William Henry Harrison, and numerous Revolutionary War and Civil War battlefields. In eastern Henrico County, the trail returns to the banks of the James River and reaches the heart of the modern waterfront in downtown Richmond, where it connects to the Canal Walk and the James River Park System.

Church on The Main- In Pointe at JamestJamestown beach campgroundown

  The Williamsburg Land Conservancy permanently protects this 1.39 –acre site where the Church on the Main stood for around 100 years.  The Battle of Greensprings was fought on the site, and it is believed the church served as a hospital for the battle’s wounded soldiers.  An archeological team led by Alain Outlaw has been working on the site for many years.  The team was able to locate the church’s foundation, and identified 210 gravesites that surrounded the actual church.

Area History

  The late 17th Century saw extremely rapid growth in the population of James City County. While most of this population was concentrated in Jamestown and the Middle Plantation ( Williamsburg), small agricultural holdings along the Jchurch on the mainames River also saw a significant increase in population and land cleared for farming. One such holding arose approximately 2 miles from Jamestown on an area known as “the Main.” Sometime in the early 1750’s a new parish was built on the Main in response to the increasing populations in the mainland area and to accommodate the parishioners of the James City Parish in Jamestown, which was destroyed by fire around that time. This Church on the Main continued to serve Anglican congregations for approximately 60 years. Though it is unclear when the facility ceased functioning as a church, records show its continued usage through 1805, and it is documented that the building remained in existence until shortly after the Civil War.

The Battle of Greenspring

 battle of greenspring During the Revolutionary War, the Battle of Greenspring took place on the property of the parish and in its immediate vicinity. On July 6, 1781, the forces of General Wayne (serving with General Lafayette) met the far superior British forces of General Cornwallis. Though outnumbered 8:1 in battle the American forces were able to retreat from the battle and later met the forces of Cornwallis in a decisive victory at Yorktown.

Between 30-50 British, American, and French soldiers were killed in the Battle of Greenspring, and it is speculated that some of these soldiers might be buried in the Cemetery of the Church on the Main.

 James City County is located in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia and is situated between the James and York Rivers, tidal rivers that join the Chesapeake Bay.

Shoppers can enjoy more than 22 shopping centers in the county as well as two popular outlet malls. Both York River State Park and Colonial National Historic Park are located in James City County as well as 13 other parks. In addition, Busch Gardens, named "the most beautiful theme park" in the nation, and Water Country USA are other attractions that bring families to vacation here.
