The Williamsburg-Yorktown Daily reported that the Jamestown Church tower could be in danger of falling apart. The tower, built in 1639, is the only original structure above ground from the original Jamestown colony. Sen. John Miller (D) introduced a budget amendment to the General Assembly to apprpriate $100,000 to help fund the restoration project, which is estimated to cost a total of about $150,000.
