Jamestown Is More Than What You Learned in History Class
Most of us educated in American public schools know a little about Jamestown already. Jamestown, VA was the first permanent English settlement in North America, following several failed attempts, most notably the Roanoke Colony. The Jamestown settlers experienced a harsh few years, to say the least. About 80% of the colonists died from starvation or disease within the first three years. However, Jamestown prevailed, becoming home to the story of Captain John Smith and Pocahontas, as well as the influential College of William and Mary. This brief synopsis only scratches the surface of the history that lies within Jamestown, and you’ll love discovering more on one of our tours.
Things to Do in Today’s Jamestown
Today, Jamestown has much more to offer than dry stories of the past. When you visit this historic settlement with Haymarket Transportation, you’ll get to see a replica of the town complete with real-life actors. Besides colonial history, you’ll learn how the settlement affected the surrounding culture of the Powhatan Native Americans. Depending on the date you schedule your group vacation, you may be able to participate in events and attractions on the premises. Jamestown often features guest speakers and blacksmithing demonstrations to gain a deeper view of history. After a long day of taking in the past, drop by Jamestown’s Dale House Café or browse souvenirs at the gift shop.
