Planning a Commemoration
The 400th anniversary of America’s first permanent English colony, founded in Virginia in 1607, was commemorated through a series of events and programs that began in 2006 and continued into 2008. Jamestown 2007, a state planning organization established as the result of 1996 Virginia General Assembly action, partnered with state and federal entities and Virginia communities in coordinating anniversary efforts. The celebration was a grand success, and Jamestown is thrilled to be a part of the birth and continuing life cycle of this great nation.
The graphic illustrates the many organizations and committees that coordinated resources for the commemoration:
