Celebrate America's 400th Anniversary at The Inn at 802 -
The Jamestown 2007 Celebration



Jamestown 2007 is the event commemorating the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown, Virginia in 1607. For celebration lasts for 18 months and includes events and programs planned throughout Colonial Williamsburg, all of Virginia, major East Coast cities as well as Britain. The commemoration began on May 27, 2006 with the sailing of the replica ship Godspeed to major ports along the East Coast.

The highlight of the celebration is expected to be a visit by Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom. As the current British monarch, the queen's presence at this historic event will further demonstrate the strength of the Anglo-American relations. Elizabeth is the direct descendant and heir of James I of England, under whose authority the settlement was founded, as well as the direct descendant and heir to George III of the United Kingdom, the King who lost the same territory nearly two hundred years later.

In February 2006, it was announced that retired Supreme Court Associate Justice Sandra Day O'Connor would become the honorary chair of America's 400th Anniversary. In October 2005, she accepted the ceremonial role of becoming the 23rd chancellor of the
College of William and Mary, which was founded in nearby Williamsburg in 1693.
