This is an update on the repair and restoration of the 17th century church tower at Historic Jamestown. This successful two-year program is the result of the contributions our Company and members made together with other companies towards the Society’s fund for the project. It was in the vanguard of about $200,000 raised for the skilled work that has given the iconic structure its needed integrity and stability. We summarized this effort on our website’s Jamestown Archaeology page.
The Williamsburg Yorktown Daily recently published a progress report with details of the project’s current status and consideration of future plans.
The project’s main sponsors, Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and Preservation Virginia, were also honored by the James City County Historical Commission “for their swift fundraising and conservation work to stabilize the iconic Jamestown Church Tower,” according to a press release from CWF.
