Historical Adventure at Jamestown Settlement

The life size re-creations include a military fort for you to explore.  Walk through the modest homes, church and the Governors house, while all around you historical interpreters work as blacksmiths, and other period occupations.

Jamestown SettlementYou can discover the village of the Powhatan, home of Pocahontas and learn more about the relationship between these ‘locals’ and the new colonists.  A walk to the Jamestown Pier and you’ll find replicas of the three ships which brought the settlers to Virginia.  Explore the nooks and crannies aboard the Susan Constant, The Godspeed, and the Discovery.

In addition to the ‘living history’ exhibits you can also visit a museum filled with exhibition galleries covering the story of America’s beginnings.  Artifacts and films will educate you on American history from the first Colony in 1607, to the Revolution nearly two centuries later.  All in one day!
