The nation's first Federal war-housing project, this planned community was sponsored by the U. S. Shipping Board and the Newport News Shipyard on the site of J. Pembroke Jones' Warwick County farm "Hilton". It was opened July 7, 1918, and sold to private owners after World War I. Street names in the 100-acre tract of former pine woods containing 500 English village-type houses honor government and shipyard officials.
