Laurence Path (Pope Ave.)

Estall Laurence is revealed by the 1783 Mosse Survey to have been a planter of some magnitude, operating a total of six plantations with more than 1600 acres. He laid out the road from the main north-south island public road on the south side of Broad Creek to the Atlantic, separating Port Comfort and Possum Point Plantations. Laurence’s Path, now Pope Avenue, has become the island’s main business thoroughfare (1972).
