1. Nominy Church Marker
Inscription.  One of the two churches of the Cople Parish. It was built in 1704 on land given by Youell Watkins, and was replaced in 1755 by a brick church at the same site. George Washington attended services here twice in 1768. The last colonial church burned (1814) by the British Admiral Cockburn, who carried off the church silver. The present building was erected about 1652. The first Nominy Church of 1655 stood on the north side of the river opposite this place.
 
Erected 1949 by Virginia Conservation Commission. (Marker Number JT-2.)
