Jamestown, Virginia

We visited Jamestown, Va and it drizzled rain the entire time. At least when we were here it wasn't too bad and we could get out of the car. This was a very interesting site with so much history. To think that our ancestors landed here years before the Mayflower landed in Plymouth and survived. At least a few survived.

This is the fort. How people survived here in the harsh winters is amazing.

This is the site of the first landing which is actually about 100 yards off shore due to the erosion of the river.

This is the fort at Jamestown.

Statue of Captain John Smith, Governor of Virginia.

Near the church they are excavating the site for ruins from Jamestown. There is a museum on site with many artifacts they have found.

Statue of Pocahontas.
