The first permanent English colony in North America was established at Jamestown, Virginia, in 1607. Through the discovery and study of the remains of their daily lives, much has been learned of the struggles endured and successes enjoyed by these settlers. Archeologists have uncovered fortifications, buildings, wells, and more than 500,000 artifacts, as well as the remains of the 1607 James Fort. There is more to learn and much to celebrate on the eve of the 400th anniversary of America's birthplace. Jamestown National Historic Site was entered into the National Register of Historic Places on October 15, 1966.
