Come to Virginia

Visit or Settle in Virginia

We mainly have British settlers here and those who work for Virginia Company. Our location in the south makes this colony a prime spot for crops to grow. In fact, growing tobacco is a major source of the wealth in Virginia. Other crops grown in Virginia include wheat and corn. Our trade routes include the Middle Passage, where traders often trade our tobacco for slaves to work our lands. Our government is the House of Burgesses, the first European type legislature body in the New World. Our Virginians worship in the Anglican Church, and we are not tolerant of non-Christian religions.
