Near Dutch Gap in Chesterfield County, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
John N. Pastore, D.D.S.
Co-founder and First Chairman from 1985-1991 of The Henricus Foundation
Dr. Pastore learned of the presence of Mt. Malady, the first hospital in North America, situated at the 1611 Citie of Henricus. He developed the concept of its reconstruction, promoted local interest in the project, acquired various parcels of land totaling 38 acres, elicited funds to build a gazebo in the park and a road to the site, and initiated the restoration of this historical contribution to our heritage.
His inspired leadership resulted in the formation of the Henricus Foundation. His dedication to the reconstruction of the Citie of Henricus as a monument to those early English settlers who forged the groundwork of this nation is gratefully acknowledge.
