Jamestown, VA

A Karen Brown Recommendation
Referred to as Virginia’s Historic Triangle are the colonial towns of Yorktown, Williamsburg and Jamestown. An interesting way to begin to understand the history of this area is to visit these three significant towns, all part of the Colonial National Historical Park, located on a peninsula between the James and York Rivers, and connected by the beautiful and scenic Colonial Parkway.
Predating Plymouth in Massachusetts by 13 years, Jamestown became the original settlement in North America when three merchant ships carrying 104 men and boys landed on what are now Virginia shores in 1607. Board life-size replicas of the three ships for a full appreciation of what these early colonists endured to reach the new land. The year 2006 marked the 400th anniversary of the Jamestown settlement and numerous activities and festivities are planned through 2008 to commemorate this special occasion.While very little of the original Jamestown remains, other than the Old Church Tower, there has been much excavation in this area and there are many monuments and statues of those prominent in Jamestown’s history. Much of the history of the War of Independence has been recorded here and those interested in the history of our nation will find much to study and see. Visit historic Jamestowne, site of the original English Settlement, which brings history to life as a living museum; visit the fort and the Powhatan Indian Village.
