On May 13, 1607, three small English ships – the Susan Constant, the Godspeed and the Discovery – approached a spit of shore at what was soon named Jamestown, the manifestation of England’s determination to establish a permanent settlement in the New World. Today, Jamestown is one of three locations – along with Williamsburg and Yorktown – that comprise the Historic Triangle of Colonial Virginia, and it is home to two heritage tourism sites related to the original fort and town: Historic Jamestowne, the archaeological site on the island a cooperative effort of Jamestown National Historic Site, part of the Colonial National Historical Park, and Preservation Virginia, formerly the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities (APVA), and the Jamestown Settlement.
