Jamestown Expo (1907), Souvenirs Photos

The Jamestown Expo (1907) was arranged to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the first English colony in America, now known for its story of Captain John Smith and Pocahontas. Virginians who organized the Expo were dismayed of New England Pilgrims getting credit for the founding of America. These leaders of Norfolk also wanted to promote the establishment of the principal American navy base at the site which they accomplished through the extensive involvement of international naval reviews and President Theodore Roosevelt at the event. Today, several of the Expo pavilions serve as houses for officers on the Naval Station Norfolk. Several museums in Virginia also display collections related to this World Fair and are collected on this photos page.
