(Anglican Church inside James Fort)
James Fort serves as a representation of the colonial settlement during 1610-14, reflecting its predominantly military and commercial character. The fort includes dwellings, an Anglican church, a court of guard, a storehouse, a cape merchant’s office, provisioning areas and a governor’s house. Historical interpreters forge and repair metal objects in a blacksmith’s forge and, near one of the fort’s three bulwarks, show how matchlock muskets are fired. Seasonally and periodically, interpreters also cultivate food and tobacco crops, produce wood products using 17th-century-style tools, and demonstrate domestic activities such as sewing and meal preparation.
