Powell Plantation Siteplan
The master plan for Waller Mill Heights fka Powell Plantation was approved by York County in July 2018 and in February of 2019, the developers received their environmental and archaeological permit approval.
The land was purchased by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in 1983 for $3.1 million with a goal of restricting development along the entrance corridor from I64 to CW.
The Foundation has previously agreed to sell a portion of the land to Centex homes in 2007 but that deal fell apart as a result of the recession.
A conservation easement was placed on 230 acres within and just outside the Carr’s Hill property to protect it from development in October of 2006
“The conservation easements provide permanent protection for views along the entry from Interstate 64 to Colonial Williamsburg’s Visitor Center and at the same time preserve the natural environment around Queen’s Creek and protect a significant archaeological site,” said Foundation President and Chairman Colin G. Campbell.
The conservation easements will prohibit development in these areas, and protect woodlands and wetlands. In addition, the easements will maintain a bald eagle habitat in the Carr’s Hill area. In addition, the Benjamin Powell Plantation site, home to a prominent 18th-century builder, will be preserved for future excavation.
The James River Institute for Archaeology conducted archaeological significance evaluations at 11 sites located the Carr’s Hill tract in York County, Virginia. The major sites on the property pertain to plantations owned by the Cobbs family in the early eighteenth century, the Custis family in the middle eighteenth century, the Powell family in the latter eighteenth century, and the Walker family in the early nineteenth century.
