“A place of many Beginnings”

Walk in the steps of Captain John Smith and Pocahontas where a successful English colonization of North America began. Despite early struggles to survive, the 1607 settlement evolved into a prosperous colony. As the colony expanded, the Virginia Indians were pushed out of their homeland. In 1619, the arrival of Africans was recorded, marking the origin of slavery in English North America.

Not to be confused with Jamestown Settlement (the living history village). This is totally worth the stop. They have a building that houses a theater that shows short films, a gift shop and LOTS of great artifacts. Outside, you can see where old buildings that were part of the settlement are being excavated and YOU CAN WALK WHERE POCAHONTAS AND JOHN SMITH WALKED. So exciting!

This is a pleasant island with tons of cool history. Most of the island has gone back to nature with a few constructed, reconstructed and cool buildings near the town.

Kids will like it and get a daily dose of history. The ferry across the river is nearby, free and fun.

I was here in 2011 and thought it was pretty cool to stand where a lot of American history started. Cool museum and stories of settlers that lived before us. Worth a couple hours of your time to take it in.

A fantastic historical site with beautiful scenery. There's a lot to do here, so you could spend an hour or two, as I did, or do a lot more. I met someone working on the reconstruction effort there, so it seems there's a lot more coming soon!
