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 graphic illustrates the many organizations and committees that coordinated resources for the commemoration.
