Jamestown Island - Jamestown, VA
News & Press: New Chesapeake Bay Gateways - 05/04/2001
Bay Journal Article:

Paddling around Jamestown lets you discover what drew settlers to island in the first place (December 1996) - If you learn anything on a trip to Virginia's "historic triangle" of Williamsburg-Jamestown-Yorktown, you learn that everything and every place has a story and most of them are pretty interesting. You learn little things like why the Chippokes Mansion didn't get destroyed in the Civil War - brandy sales to both sides - and big things, like the fact that Capt. Gabriel Archer wanted to locate the Jamestown settlement on what is now College Creek. He was outvoted.
