jamestown settlement, call ahead........ Aug 23, 2008
Well, again we got there late, we bought the tickets before we knew

they would be closing soon.We were also leaving that day so we could

not use them the next day. We wondered, not impressed with welcome

station, then went to the island, wondered again, saw that they were

digging a site, so it was left unprotected, there was never anyone

dressed in costume. At the church, my husband found the plague that

was dedicated to his great-great-great-great grandfather. So that was

the most interesting and the reason we went. We just do not think that

the site was preserved, nor laid out to tell a historic adventure of an

settlement, let alone the original settlement.

If you are interested in US History or History in general and you are in Virginia make sure to visit these sights. They are close to each other and you can purchase a combined ticket, which will save you admission for one of the two (Jamestown and Yorktown).

In Jamestown, which was the first British settlement in the "New World" you can see a rebuild powhatan village and also a reproduction of the Jamestown settlement. There are people walking around in historical clothes, who also act. There's a blacksmith for example or an indian woman. You can also see reproductions of the Mayflower and other ships, the settlers used.

In Yorktown, where the Revolutionary War against Great Britain was won, you can visit a museum and also a reproduction of a battlefield camp. Again there's actors willing to tell you about the Revolutionary War.

Williamsburg is a whole city rebuild. There's horse carriages on the road and even stocks you can put your relatives in *g*. Stores and restaurants are also kept historic.

All sites are very nice and fun to look at. You can see and feel that everyone there is excited about what they are doing and about bringing history alive! Of course there's also your usual gift shops etc.
