Additional Details:
On April 26th 1607, the London Company arrived at Cape Henry, but before making a permanent settlement, spent over two weeks in exploring the surrounding country, and finally, on May 13th 1607, landed on what the colonists named James City or Jamestown. The old brick tower shown here is all that remains of "the first church in America."
