400th Anniversary Events – Jamestown & Colonial Williamsburg
Long before the Empire State Building, the Sears Tower, or the Golden Gate Bridge, was the establishment of the first permanent English-speaking settlement in the New World of America. Jamestown, Virginia, is the location where many of America’s values, culture and commerce were planted 400 years ago in 1607. 2007 marks the 400th anniversary of this historical event.
If you are planning to visit Virginia’s historic triangle – comprised of Jamestown, Yorktown and Williamsburg – this is the year to do it. A number of events are scheduled throughout the year to commemorate this quadicentenary. We’ve identified many highlights of these quadricentennial events and provide links to help you get the information you need to take part in the celebration.
