Caption: History gets an update
Additional Description: Nine historical markers in Suffolk—two of which refer to Indians as “savages”—will be replaced next year. Under the new wording, approved by the Virginia Board of Historic Resources, the Dumpling Island and former Reidís Ferry markers describe the area on the Nansemond River as “the ceremonial heart” of the Nansemond district. The marker replacement program is funded by federal transportation grant money, local governments and private sponsors. The Virginia Department of Transportation will review the marker sites before they are installed. —Regina Lightfoot
