Remembering “America’s First Region”
In the past, the Hampton Roads Partnership supplied colorful posters to area schools describing historical events that occurred in “Hampton Roads, America’s First Region” over the past 400 years. If you have not received the posters or need new ones for your 4th grade classrooms, please let us know.
By participating with all other school districts in the area in this educational initiative, you are providing your students with important information about where they live and the contributions our region has made to the history of our nation.
From April 26 to May 14, 1607, three English ships sailed and explored Hampton Roads from Cape Henry (today's Virginia Beach) to Jamestown, our nation's first permanent English settlement.
