• Welcoming James River

    June 6, 2014

    My name is Sharee Williamson, and I’m leading the team at the National Trust that is working to save the James River from Dominion Power’s plans to build an insensitively sited transmission line across the river. The current plans call for construction of towers that will be visible from Colonial Parkwayand the National Historic Landmark property Carter’s Grove. Additionally, the massive scale of the transmission towers will completely dwarf paddlers who are tracing the route of Capt. John Smith along the country’s first nationally designated water trail As the National Trust’s efforts to save this iconic place continue, there will be opportunities for public comment on this controversial construction plan. Please check back often for updates on the James River, interesting information about the variety of cultural resources along the river, and opportunities to help save this significant place.
