This image provided by The National Trust for Historic Preservation shows the lower James River in James City county, Va. America’s first permanent English settlement at Jamestown was founded along the banks of the James River in 1607. Now preservationists say the river and landscape are threatened by a proposed transmission line that would change the scenic integrity of the area and that is what led to the site being on the trusts 2013 list of 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.
