Significance: Constructed between 1931 and 1957, the Colonial Parkway links Jamestown Island, Williamsburg and Yorktown, as part of the Colonial National Historical Park. Established in 1930, Colonial NHP was part of the Park Service's efforts to expand its mission to include the preservation and restoration of historic sites in the east. Integral to the park's conception, Colonial Parkway was designed as a scenic drive that incorporates historical and natural features of Tidewater Virginia. At both the Yorktown and Jamestown termini of the parkway, interpretive tour roads provide a more specialized visitor experience for those sites.
