Lawrence Lewis Jr. Park Interpretive Waysides

block Lawrence Lewis, Jr. Park

This 24-acre park in Charles City, Virginia was once home to the Weyanoke Indians, the tribe that claimed the site that European settlers turned into Jamestown. With the 400th anniversary of John Smith's "Voyages of Exploration" beginning in 2007, Lewis Park will install a series of interpretive wayside panels that describe the natural and cultural world of the Chesapeake in the early 1600s. The panels will be installed along an existing trail leading from a popular picnic pavilion to an elevated viewing platform.

Amount Funded: $10,970.00

Start Date: 09/15/2005
