Explore replicas of the ships that brought the English colonists to Virginia, explore the life-size re-creation of a military fort and a Powhatan village and relive the days of the early 17th century, all at Jamestown Settlement. Thirteen years before the Pilgrims made their voyage to America, 104 English men and boys made a home on the banks of Virginia’s James River. The Virginia Company of London wanted to make a profit from whatever resources the “New World” may bring, and therefore funded the voyage of these men in 1607. After suffering through many hardships that threatened lives, the men and boys were able to survive and became America’s first permanent English colony.
