Established by Virginia's first road act of 1632 by the House of Burgesses at Jamestown, this road is named for Francis Kirtley, appointed in 1731 to oversee its upkeep and repair. This gravel road bed between Historic James City and Prince Michel Vineyards is the last remaining unpaved portion of this colonial route still owned and maintained by VDOT.
