Present Jamestown Church (the sixth built on the site)

In January, 1639, Governor John Harvey reported that he, the Council, the ablest planters and some sea captains, "had contributed to the building of a brick church" at Jamestown. This church (the fourth) was slightly larger than the third church and was built around it. It was still unfinished in November, 1647 when efforts were made to complete it. After it was finished the church tower was added. The ruins of the church tower in front of the church, the only seventeenth-century building still standing, can still be seen at Jamestown.
