Welcome to Jamesvilletonburgtown

Jamesburg, Jamesville, Jamesdale, Jameston, JAMESTOWN!  That's the ticket! 

A new life awaits you in the off-Britain colonies!  The chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure!   

Regarded as the first English settlement in America after the lost and forsaken Roanoke Colony, Jamestown was settled on May 14, 1607, 403 years ago to this day; Maybe even to this second! The settlement was named after this boy and his comedic nightmares, NOT King James I of England - a common misunderstanding.  Anyways, the location of Jamestown was chosen for strategic defensive purposes against any attacks by sea.  However, the area was plagued by mosquitoes, offered undrinkable water, limited farming, and happened to be inhabited by Native-Americans (all minor setbacks).  Tobacco got the colony off the ground and then Pocahontas came along, looking all "available", and the rest is horrifyingly brutal history, which I won't bore you with now.  Let's just say there was a little of this, a little of that, and now here we are - a perfect amalgamation of everything our forefathers stood for in principal and in action: PATRIOTS!
