Pace's Paines plaque

RICHARD PACE - 1590-1626
Came over on ship, "Marmaduke" in 1611. Came to Virginia in 1620. Granted about 400 acres of land 4 mi. from Jamestown, Virginia, right on the James River. He was responsible for saving Jamestown's inhabitants from massacre in 1622. His indian servant Chico warned him of impending attacks and he warned the settlers.

"The Threat to Pace's Paines" - The virginia Highway Department proposes to put a new highway right though the center of Paces Paines. This would ruin a site of great historical significance, not only to the Paces, bu to the nation itself. Richard Pace, the first owner of this plantation (1620) was as important to America as Paul revere. Had he not rowed from Paces Paines across the James River to warn Jamestownof the impending Indian massacre in 1622, the settlement would have been delayed, or even abandoned, and we might have had no United Statesof America at all. Now, to serve traffic 'needs' this beautiful place must be cut up and may some day have motels and neon light along its now peaceful green-hedged roads." (I have not checked an area map, and have not been down there to see if this 'new' highway was ever put through.)

"We are certain this proposal angers the members of the Pace Society. Surely there are other alternatives available to the Highway
Department. Pace descendants over many years have sought to visit Paces Paines, now the estate of Mr. Franz von Schilling and known as Mount Pleasant Plantation. The Von Schillings have welcomed us warmly, and have twice entertained our annual meeting groups."

"But now 'Paces Paines' needs our help. I strongly urge that every member write a letter, or letters, as suggested by our Dr. Ben McCary, whose open letter to members of the Pace Society follows. Marvin H. Pace, President."

'The Virginia Highway Department proposes to move the present ferry dock on the south side of the James River at Scotland Wharf, and replace it with a new ferry dock just above Swann Point. A new highway would be built to connect it with Surry County Court House - (see the double broken line on the map which follows.)'

'1. The proposed highway would almost cut through the center of the original six hundred acres of historic Paces Paines, granted to Richard Pace in 1620. It was from this plantation - (now Mount Pleasant) - that Richard Pace, in the early morning of March 22, 1622, after being warned of the impending Indian massacre by his Indian servant Chanco, rowed across the James River to give the warning which saved Jamestown and nearby settlements. No archaeological work has been done at Paces Paines to uncover the foundations of the fort, houses, and artifacts associated with this early settlement. the proposed highway would completely destroy the archaeological possibilities.'

'2. A ferry pier and highway built as proposed would destroy the scenic value of the undistrubed forest in the area. This is definitely a tourist asset, when viewed from the ferry using the present crossing from Jamestown Festival Park to Scotland War.'

'3. The proposed new ferry crossing would not offer the inspiring view of Jamestown Island enjoyed by millions of tourists in years past when crossing from Scotland Wharf to Jamestown Festival Park.'

'4. The proposed highway would represent a needless expenditure since the Rolfe Highway already exists and leads to the present Scotland Wharf. This existing highway can be enlarged, and improved if necessary.'
