Jamestown Settlement & Yorktown Victory Center

Project Description

Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation
Williamsburg, Virginia

As part of Virginia’s 400th anniversary celebration of the founding of Jamestown, both the Jamestown and Yorktown Museum sites and landscapes were completely transformed.  Underlying design goals included supporting new outdoor interpretive programs, enriching the visitor experience, strengthening green stormwater infrastructure, and restoring native plant ecologies. 

Our Yorktown projects included designs for a new Colonial States Flag Court and a Military Encampment interpretive area.  At Jamestown, our work included pedestrian realm improvements for the Terrace Promenade, the Central Mall and a number of interpretive areas. Additionally, we developed planting designs to enrich interpretive themes and programs for the Powhatan Indian Village, Colonial Fort, Wetland Boardwalk, Colonial Garden, and Riverfront demonstration area.
