New Point’s WWII history

New signage has been recently installed on the New Point Comfort Lighthouse Overlook boardwalk. The panel recounts and celebrates the U.S. Army World War II Firing Center and Camp located at New Point. The sign was funded by donations from residents of nearby Chesapeake Shores. Becky Barnhardt designed the interpretive sign which was fabricated and installed by The Nature Conservancy. Sam Truslow, project manager for TNC, is shown here on the day of the sign’s installation. Mathews County Historical Society was the agent for the project. The photos on the sign were from Barnhardt’s mother’s photo album of her time visiting the camp. Lt. Charles Davidson and Cpl. Harry Dawes are featured in one of the pictures. Both went on to marry Mathews women—Davidson married Eloise Winder and Dawes married Dorothy Deane Forrest.
