Historic Jamestowne is the site of the first permanent English settlement in America. On May 14, 1607, a group of entrepreneurs and their families, totaling a 104 persons, landed on Jamestown Island, and began the first colonial settlement under a charter granted by King James I to members of the Virginia Company. The streets of Jamestown were once graced with the presences of Pocahontas, meaning “playful one”, and Captain John Smith. The site is now jointly administered by the National Park Service and the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation on behalf of Preservation Virginia.
