The Dorothy Roy Chimneys and the Leckie (Holloway) House
US Rte 301 and Water Street, Port Royal, Virginia
These two chimneys are all that remain of the home of Dorothy Roy. Roy was the only woman to hold a franchise to operate a tobacco warehouse in the American Colonies.
Her business was chartered in 1673 by John Buckner and was passed on to her husband, John Roy. Upon his death the business passed to Dorothy Roy.
She also owned a license to operate a tavern, which was an active center of commerce in Port Royal.
