- Historic Sites
Founded by the Virginia Company on May 14, 1607, this historic site is the first permanent English settlement in the United States.
This is "the real Jamestown" -- the site of the original 1607 fort and the on-going archaeological excavations. Nearby, a fabulous new museum called the Archaearium puts these artifacts in their proper context. At a glass house down the road, costumed craftsmen demonstrate one of the first industries of English America.
