1607 was the year our country began the first permanent English settlement in North America with the settlement of Jamestown. Spring 2019 was the completion of a $10.6 million restoration of the Jamestown Settlement Gallery. There will be an overall guided tour upon arrival with time on our own to view the exhibits which highlight the beginning of the Jamestown Colony and how it evolved in the 17th Century. “Tenacity: Women in Jamestown and Early Virginia,” is a very special exhibit which portrays the struggles real women endured and the many contributions they made in the early colonial days of the New World.
Lunch will be at Riverwalk Restaurant which is on the shores of the York River. The choice will be either Riverwalk Crab Cakes or Herb Roasted Chicken with Southern Barbecue Sauce. Please note your choice on your check.
After lunch is a guided sampler tour of the totally redone American Revolution Museum at Yorktown. This museum is the story of how our country fought and struggled for independence from the Revolution to the Battle of Yorktown. It is the story of an emerging nation that did not give up.
Do not wait to sign up as this promises to be a very popular tour. With history, fine dining on the York River and a beautiful fall day, this tour will be filled quickly.
