Inscription
Off this point in early June 1610 anchored the small ships of the starving colonists who had abandoned Jamestown and started down the river to return to England. It was here they were apprised of the timely arrival of Sir Thomas West, (Lord de la Warr) with abundant supplies and new settlers, and the colonists were able to return to their homes at Jamestown. Lord de la Warr (1577-1618) was the First Governor and Captain General of the Colony of Virgina.
