WELCOME TO WAREHAM'S POINT
The name Wareham's Point is described in a very interesting booklet, "Who's Who," by Bill Brown, which traced the street and subdivision names in Kingsmill: "Around 1630, John Wareham purchased George Sandy's 400 acre Utopia Plantation in the eastern end of Kingsmill and renamed it Hampton Key Plantation. It had been formerly owned by Browning, Richards, Utey , Commandres , and Claiborne. Two years later, Wareham was elected to the Assembly as the representative of Mount's Bay, as much of Kingsmill was then called. Our Wareham's Pond was built by Busch Properties in the early 1970's, but the stream and marsh was we now call Skiffes Creek on the border of James City County and Newport News was called Wareham's Pond, Wareham's Creek, and the Green Swamp on various 17th and 19th Century maps."
Wareham's Point is the crown jewel of Kingsmill in the Spring when the beautiful flowering cherry trees and daffodils lining the entrance and roads are in full bloom. When the summer sizzles, the crepe myrtles provide pizazz.
Wareham's Pond was created by Busch Properties in the early 1970s. Between 1991 and 1993, Wareham's Point's 72 residences, offering four floor plans, were completed in three phases. Many of the town homes border the 7th and 8th holes and fairways of the River Course, while others are situated above Wareham's Pond with vistas of the pond and the James River. Swans, cranes, eagles and deer sightings delight all in this idyllic setting.
The parcel camaraderie has existed from the start. Wareham's Point own Wine and Dine has evolved into two groups, with members changing yearly by a drawing. They meet monthly for cocktails at the hosts' homes and then go out to dinner. In December, there is a holiday party; in June, a picnic. During the warm summer months, Wine and Diners love poolside parties. There are also ladies' and mens' luncheons, golf, and bridge groups for recreation.
The spirit of Wareham's Point is evident when residents volunteer to water newly planted flowers and shrubs during the hottest months and participate in daffodil bulb planting during December. The latter results in spectacular displays of daffodils blooming throughout Wareham's Point during the Spring.
This same spirit is present in WPAGN (Wareham's Pointers Are Good Neighbors.) There is always help when needed.
