James River Plantations was produced by the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places in partnership with the James River Plantations of Charles City County, Virginia, the Virginia Department of Historic Resources and the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers (NCSHPO). It was created under the direction of the John W. Roberts, Acting Chief of the National Register of Historic Places, Patrick W. Andrus, Heritage Tourism Program Manager, and Beth L. Savage, Publications Managing Editor, in cooperation with Carol D. Shull, Chief of Heritage Education Services. James River Plantations is based on information in the files of the National Register of Historic Places and National Historic Landmarks collections. These materials are kept at 1201 Eye St., NW, Washington, D.C., and are open to the public from 9:00am to 12:00pm, Monday through Thursday.
Brian Gordineer of the James River Plantations of Charles City County, Virginia, conceptualized and compiled written information for the itinerary. National Register web production team members included Jeff Joeckel, who designed the itinerary, Rustin Quaide and Shannon Davis (all of NCSHPO). Property descriptions were written by Brian Gordineer, edited by Shannon Davis and based upon National Register nominations and Calder Loth's Virginia Landmarks Register (4th edition, 1999), published by the University Press of Virginia. Maps and contextual essays were compiled by Rustin Quaide. Thank you to Calder Loth, Marc Wagner, Keith Egloff, Randolph Turner, Jean McRae (Virginia Department of Historic Resources) and Carl Lounsbury (Colonial Williamsburg Foundation) for their assistance.
