According to Gloucester legend this chimney is all that remains of the house built by CaptainJohn Smith for Indian Chief Powhatan in 1609

The collapse of this chimney in an 1888 storm gave impetus to the preservation movement in Virgina Concerned Virginians banded together in Williamsburg Norfolk, Richmond determined to save other historical structures & sites from similar fate From their effort came the organization of the Association of the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities

The present structure was rebuilt in the 1930's by..The Joseph Bryan Branch of the APVA
