      A stylish female figure can be seen in many photographs documenting the architectural team who undertook the restoration of Williamsburg’s historic district.

    • Finding Tranquil Spaces
      The historic area in the spring can be a little hectic. Between the excited school groups who are happily (and let’s face it, loudly) learning about our nation’s history, the gorgeous and varied dogs on DoG street, and the many other guests here to take in the beautiful weather and bright flowers… it can get...Read More »
    • Becoming Mrs. Washington: Martha the Mom
      Before she was Mrs. Washington, Martha was Mrs. Custis. It’s well known that Martha and George Washington were not blessed with any children of their own during their 40-year marriage (theories abound…we’ll get to that another time). Martha did have four children, though, during her first marriage to Daniel Parke Custis. This period of Martha’s...Read More » […]

Stop the power lines-Save the James

A message from : National Trust for Historic Preservation

The Down to the Wire team has been hard at work and on the move, letting Virginia — and the nation — know about Dominion Virginia Power’s plan to put high-voltage power lines across the beautiful, historic James River. Last week, we took the campaign to Jamestown — the birthplace of our country, and an area that would be directly impacted by these power lines.

The third episode of their #DownToTheWire  video series puts you in the middle of the action at Jamestown Landing Day, near the site where Dominion Virginia Power is proposing to construct power lines. We talked with visitors and asked them what makes it so special to them — and their heartfelt answers show just how much their experience would change if Dominion goes through with its short-sighted plan.

With the river sparkling behind them and history all around, visitors signed our petition, urging Dominion to seriously consider other options. Can you help us add even more signatures? Share the petition with your friends and family so they can join us in asking Dominion to do the right thing — because the James River should be preserved for everybody.

Thank you,

The James River Team at the National Trust
