A Little History – It started in jolly old England. In September 1649, King Charles II of England gave eight of his trusted supporter’s large parcels of land in the new world called the “Northern Neck”. However, King Charles II couldn’t follow through and actually ensure legal title until he regained the throne eleven years later. The grandson of Lord Culpeper finally established legal claim over the grant. The grant encompassed the land between the Rappahannock and Potomac Rivers. One of his holdings was a 7000+ parcel which straddled the “Little River Turnpike”. Today, part of the “Turnpike” is known as Lee-Jackson Highway.
