Henricus breaks ground for colonial church
Henricus Historical Park hosted a ground-breaking ceremony May 7 for the re-creation of the 1611 colonial church and meeting hall; officials also unveiled architectural renderings and a construction timeline for the building, acknowledged donors, and honored the late Thomas K. McLaughlin, Jr., honorary town architect at Henricus.
