Colonial America is comprised of Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown, also known as Virginia’s Historic Triangle. These important settlements are linked by the Colonial Parkway, a very well-maintained 23 mile scenic paved road that winds past waterways and forested lands protected in the Colonial National Historic Park. The three towns mark pivotal junctures on our Nation’s journey from establishment of the first English colony to the decisive battle that secured America’s independence from England.
The Historic Triangle has changed much since its beginnings in the early 1600s, but reminders abound in excavated foundations, bronze sculptures, memorialized encampments and battlefields, reconstruction of original homes, pubs, purveyor shops and town buildings, museums and wonderful reenactments of historic moments. Walking the roads of Colonial America, there is a true sense of American heritage along with a lingering air of victory and freedom won by brave men and women who dared to settle in an unknown, wild frontier.
The aim is to make these pages informative and inspiring so you get out there and explore Colonial America. Explore more about the expeditions through photographs and insights shared of Colonial Williamsburg, Historic Jamestowne, Jamestown Settlement and Yorktown.
