Inscription. For nearly 20 years, J. F. (Jack) Gregory was the general manager and superintendent for all of Henry Fordís various operations in and around Ways Station, later Richmond Hill. Serving for Ford from the 1920s until 1946, Gregory oversaw the activities of the Richmond Hill Plantation, a large agricultural enterprise that employed many local and area residents. Known as a hard-working, no-nonsense, manager, Gregory ran Fordís operations with great efficiency and organization.
