The Unsung Grandfather of the James River Park
Many of you know of James River Park Superintendent Nathan Burrell. He’s a constant source of energy and advocacy for this jewel. And a lot of what he’s done builds on the 30+ years of stewardship of Ralph White. But one of the earliest advocates for the James River and the Park we love today was boat builder Newton Ancarrow. Harry Kollatz Jr. did a great profile of him for Richmond Magazine in 2003. You can read about him here.
