Pocahontas Mural At The Gloucester Library

The Pocahontas mural on the side of the Gloucester County Library has had it's share of debate. Some people love it, some hate it and some could care less either way. To shed some light on this issue, we thought we would point out that the mural is a time line from left to right of the life of Pocahontas. On the far left of the mural is Chief Powhatan, followed by Pocahontas as a child, then defending Captain John Smith and then with her husband John Rolfe and ending with her last year of life in Europe as the toast of the town. Click Here for more history on Pocahontas. When you understand the mural itself, maybe there can be more appreciation for this wonderful piece we are fortunate to have here in Gloucester.

Your Business Signs In Gloucester County

If you ever wondered what happens to your signs here in Gloucester County, well here they are at the dump. If your signs are not in the right areas, or you do not have approval for these signs, the folks at VDOT have orders to pick them up and throw them out. You are in violation of Gloucester County Ordinances. So spending all that money on signs and just placing them where you think will be seen by the most people will not do you any good. In fact, they may eventually get you into trouble for violating county ordinances. Gloucester has very strict ordinances for a reason. No one wants to travel around and get bombarded with signs at every turn. As a business person myself, I understand the need to advertise your business. Just please go about it the right way.
