From earliest times Jamestown was divided into several sub-areas. Old Towne is where Jamestown began as a settlement and where the original James Fort of 1607 has been rediscovered. To the East of Old Towne is New Towne where Jamestown grew into a city of manufacturing, busniesses, homes and the seat of government after the fort no longer exsist.
Other areas up and down the James River have also had significant influence on Jamestown's history, areas like Green Spring, Henrico, Martin's Hundred and others. The links under this catagory provide you with some of that history.
