The Jamestown Settlement galleries provide a setting for one of the most varied collections of objects relating to the nation’s beginnings in 17th-century Virginia.

The Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation collection has been developed to support the museum’s storyline and includes objects representative of the Powhatan Indian, European and African cultures that converged in 1600s Virginia.

After hundreds of years of multiple owners and generations of families, and the death of the last resident in 1964, Carter's Grove was added to Colonial Williamsburg Foundation's (CW) properties through a gift from the Rockefeller Foundation in 1969.

Carter's Grove was open to tourists for many years but closed its doors to the public in 2003 while CW redefined its mission and role.

Elizabeth and Nathaniel had a son: Carter Burwell (1716–1777). Lucy was the daughter of John Grymes (1691–1749) and Lucy Ludwell (1698–1748).

“We’ve acquired artifacts to illustrate the way of life of 17th-century Virginians and the three parent cultures, where they came from and how they adapted to new and rapidly changing circumstances,” said Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation Senior Curator Thomas E. Artifacts are acquired through gifts from private donors.

The non-archaeological portion of the collection is comprised of objects made mostly in Europe and Africa, including ceremonial and decorative objects, portraits, maps, books, engravings, furniture, ceramics, glassware, cookware, navigational instruments, apparel, toys, tools, and weapons and military accouterments.

In 1620, Wolstenholme Towne was built on the original land grant on the James River known as Martin's Hundred (in what is now James City County, Virginia).

It was owned by an investment group of the Virginia Company of London but was later abandoned after losing many of its citizens in the Indian Massacre of 1622.
