Captain John Smith.
Jamestown 1607 - The first permanent colony of the English people.

The picture of this sign was taken in 1972.  It says "The fort, it is believed, stood just beyond this marker"  This sign was not there when we visited in 2000.  They have discovered that 80% of the original fort is still on land and they are just starting to excavate it.
