Re-created James Fort interprets the settlement during 1610-14, reflecting its predominantly military and commercial character.
Inside the triangular wooden palisade are wattle-and-daub structures topped with thatch roofs depicting dwellings, an Anglican church, a court of guard, a storehouse, a cape merchant’s office and a governor’s house.
Historical interpreters forge and repair metal objects in a blacksmith’s forge and show how matchlock muskets are fired. Seasonally and periodically, interpreters also produce wood products using 17th-century-style tools, engage in domestic activities such as sewing and meal preparation and, outside the fort, cultivate food and tobacco crops.
