Jamestown Exposition 1907
The Jamestown Exposition was held on 340 acres at Sewells Point (now the Norfolk Naval Base) from April to November 1907 to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the first permanent English settlement in America. A miniature city was created here, with boulevards, lights and telephone service and beautiful permanent buildings representing governments, manufacturers, organizations and institutions from all over the world. Although not a financial success, the Exposition attracted many enthusiastic visitors, and some of its original buildings are still in use today.
