Notes
Survey number HAER VA-116
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N409).
Building/structure dates: 1955 initial construction
Significance: Completed in 1957, the Jamestown island loop road was the last road-building contract associated with the completion of the Colonial Parkway. Considered a "wilderness road," the five mile circuit is designed to provide a sense of the primitive isolation of the seventeenth century frontier. Along the short (three mile) and the full circuit, interpretive paintings by Sidney King depict the first settlers use and adaptation to the land. These paintings are representative of 1950s interpretive programs of the NPS at Colonial National Historical Park.
