Historic Hampton Roads: Where America Began (Used)
At Cape Henry one may stand and listen to the timeless roar of the ocean and imagine the scene four hundred years ago, or at other places on Hampton Roads and the James River, where the settlers briefly stopped, and then of course Jamestown where exhibits and archaeological digs vividly tell the story of the first permanent English settlement in America. You can wander through historic homes in Norfolk, Portsmouth and Suffolk, tour museums in Hampton and Newport News, walk through restorations and reenactments of America's colonial past in Williamsburg and tour the battlefield at Yorktown where the nation's independence was secured. The history of Hampton Roads comes at you with open arms.
A publication of the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce, the Virginia Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, and the Williamsburg Area Chamber of Commerce
