Refurbishment at Jamestown

From the Associated Press

The living-history museum in Williamsburg, Va., that opened in 1957 for the 350th anniversary of America’s first permanent English settlement has new galleries and a newly expanded focus. A new 30,000-square-foot exhibit space at Jamestown Settlement explores Jamestown’s beginnings in 1607 as an English business venture, as the museum did before. The revamped offerings also devote equal time to the Powhatan Indians who lived on the land long before the English arrived and the Africans who were brought to Virginia in the 1600s.
