Colonial National Historical Park

Colonial National Historical Park

Colonial National Historical Park (NHP) administers two of the some of the most historically significant sites in the United States. The first is Historic Jamestowne, the site of the first permanent English settlement in North America in 1607. The second is the Yorktown Battlefield, the site of the final major battle of the American Revolutionary War in 1781.

Combined, these sites represent the beginning and the end of English colonial America and are connected by the 23-mile scenic Colonial Parkway. The Colonial Parkway connects Virginia's historic triangle (Jamestown, Williamsburg, Yorktown) and allows motorists to visit culturally distinct sites all while appreciating the surrounding landscape, and reducing impact on natural resources.
