Welcome to Greater First Colony!

Greater First Colony includes the neighborhoods of First Colony on the James, Chestnut Hill, Shellbank, Shellbank Woods, and Heritage Landing. Together, we invite you to browse through this website and discover what makes this an award-winning community. The activities, amenities, clubs, and committees are just the beginning.

Join the Association!

All residents of the Greater First Colony are invited and encouraged to join the Greater First Colony Area Civic Association (GFCACA). GFCACA members are what make Greater First Colony a terrific place to call home. 

After becoming a GFCACA member, you and your family have access to the park, lake, tennis and pickleball courts, basketball court, soccer field, playground, and the beach and marina. You also receive free admission to several community-sponsored events. Additional charges are incurred for pool membership and/or to launch, store, or dock a boat at the marina

If you or someone you know has trouble accessing the dues and fees information online, please contact the Business Manager Amy Day at
