Historic Jamestowne

Sources of Giving 2002–2011

Sources of Giving 2002–2011At Historic Jamestowne, walk the grounds of modern America's birthplace and learn about the discovery of the once "lost" 1607 James Fort. The archaeologists of the Jamestown Rediscovery Project, led by Dr. William "Bill" Kelso, have unearthed more than one million artifacts that tell the story of our nation's first permanent settlement. In addition to the active archaeological site, view artifacts from the original 1607 fort site at the Nathalie P & Alan M. Voorhees Archaearium or simply enjoy a leisurely lunch at the Dale House Café on the banks of the scenic James River.

Sources of Giving 2002–2011In 2010, The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and Preservation Virginia formed a partnership to showcase the Jamestown Rediscovery Project and the connected histories of Jamestown and Williamsburg. This collaborative brings together experts to enhance public archaeology and create a broader, more cohesive guest experience through family-friendly programs.
