Historic Jamestowne is the original site of the first permanent English settlement in America. Ongoing archaeology at the site of James Fort has changed our understanding of the struggles and triumphs of early 1600s life in Virginia. Living history programs and an archaeology museum tell the story of this dramatic rediscovery. The site is jointly administered by the National Park Service and Preservation Virginia.

Historical Jamsetowne is a must for all who value the origins of English Virginia. Even to stand at the rivers edge to the sea at the actual place of some of the first English settlements is so moving. It is only a bus ride away...More

Great history lesson at the museum, but be sure to visit the National Park also! the museum is run by the state of Virginia and is excellent, but the National Park Service also has a wonderful visitors center as well!

I did the historic triangle but don't think you could complete Gettysburg and Jamestowne due to distance. Jamestown historic site takes a couple hours then the archeological site at least two.hours
