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.

Below, Patricia O'Bannon, Henricus board member and Tuckahoe representative to the Henrico Board of Supervisors, reads a proclamation recognizing McLaughlin as his wife Mary, daughter Mary Elizabeth, and son Tommy look on. Above, performers Kelly Kennedy and Friends serenade the crowd as they enjoy lunch following the ceremony outside Mt. Malady, a re-creation of the first English hospital in the New World.
