Jamestown Settlement

Jamestown Settlement is a state-run living history museum.  It is not on the grounds of the actual 1607 town.

Part of the museum included outdoor living history areas like this Powhatan Indian village.

Nolan was just supposed to stand there to give you a size reference but he had to ham it up with the corn-grinding pestle replica.  Needless to say, he got tired of ducking to go into these houses after the first couple.

There were replicas of each of the ships.

We were allowed to explore the Susan Constant

The captain's cabin.


This unfinished canoe looks like a water trough.

We saw blue jays, chickens and this red-headed woodpecker.

Native tobacco on the right.

The walls of the fort.



Nice little house.

Sleeping loft overhead.

The loft was occupied.

Governor's residence.

Definitely living well in comparison to the rest of the folks.

Thought I would point out the sliding windows.  You just slid the board to the right to shut the window.
