Welcome to the Colony of Virginia!

Virginia is Love, Virginia is Life!

Important Beliefs

In Virginia, we believe in letting anyone practice whatever religion they want. There is not a single religion that people must follow. The most popular religions that people follow in Virginia are Anglican, Jewish, and Baptist.

Our Awesome Exports

Government

We created the first legislative assembly in the colonies. The Virginia House of Burgesses was first used a tool to make more people move to Virginia. It was a group of male settlers who met with the governor to make laws and decisions for the colony. This was the first example of representative government in the colonies and led to the belief that people should have a say in the government. Through our example, the other colonies followed us.

Climate and Landscape

The climate in Virginia was very warm, which meant less harsh winters. It also meant that crops could be grown year round. Virginia's landscape mainly consisted of valleys, mountains, coastal plains and other forms of breath-taking scenery. Because Virginia is very mountainous and river filled, the landscape helped boost the tobacco economy since the rivers made the soil fertile.
