On August 25, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed the "Organic Act" establishing the National Park Service "...which purpose is to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations." Providing for the enjoyment while also preserving and protecting Historic Jamestowne is a delicate balance. You can help us accomplish this balance by following a few simple DO's and DONT's.
