Description

GOVERNOR’S LAND, A PART OF HISTORY

In an area with such a culturally rich past, it is no surprise that The Governor’s Land at Two Rivers shares so closely in the early history of our country.

As part of the initial construction of The Governor’s Land at Two Rivers, the developer, Dominion Resources, funded an archeological dig to better understand the history of the area and uncover historical artifacts. While there are many interesting landmarks throughout the community, the eighteenth hole is one of the more historical sites. At one time this area was the center of a Paspahegh Indian village, and contained their burial ground.

To commemorate the Indian heritage of this area, the remains of eighteen Indians were reinterred in a ceremony at a new site in the community on November 20, 1993. Conducting the service were representatives from the eight state-recognized Indian tribes and the Virginia State Council on Indians. On December 19, 2000, Governor’s Land Foundation dedicated
the new site with the placement of a plaque.

Also of historic significance, the Virginia Company established a plantation in 1619 on what is today our first fairway. Artifacts discovered during the excavation of the Paspahegh village and the European sites are on display at the Two Rivers Country Club and at the Jamestown-Yorktown Settlement. The Governor’s Land community deeded specific artifacts for display at the Jamestown-Yorktown Settlement, along with a large number of research quality items
