—Jamestown Settlement —

The first permanent English settlement in North America and the first of the thirteen original colonies.


A permanent settlement was established by England's Virginia Company of London in 1607 under its original charter. In 1609, King James I granted a second charter, which increased Virginia's territory to its maximum size, stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. Following the American Revolution, Virginia relinquished her northern and western territories, which eventually were divided into individual states.
