On May 13, 1607, three small English ships – the Susan Constant, the Godspeed and the Discovery – approached a spit of shore at what was soon named Jamestown, the manifestation of England’s determination to establish a permanent settlement in the New World.  It is home to two heritage tourism sites related to the original fort and town:  Historic Jamestowne, the archaeological site on the island a cooperative effort of Jamestown National Historic Site, part of the Colonial National Historical Park, and Preservation Virginia, and the Jamestown Settlement, a living history site and museum, built for the celebration of the semiseptcentennial anniversary and operated by the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation in conjunction with the Commonwealth of Virginia.
