The Palisades, Colonial National Historic Parkway, Virginia - For pro­tec­tion against the Indians, the set­tlers built a log pal­isade across the nar­rows of the penin­sula between the York and James rivers. This was about 1633. Middle Plantation (later Williamsburg) began as a set­tle­ment along this pal­isade which had its south­ern anchor where Paper Mill and College creeks join a half mile downstream.

I love you from here to Virginia. What a great print- need to add Brambleton to the list though! ;-)
