The Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia tells the story of the thousands of people who migrated to colonial America, and of the life they created here…….
These first pioneers came to America during the 1600s and 1700s from communities in the hinterlands of England, Germany, Ireland, and West Africa.
Many were farmers and rural craftsmen set in motion by changing conditions in their homelands, and drawn to the American colonies by opportunities for a better life. Others came as unwilling captives to work on farms and plantations.
Regardless of how they arrived, all became Americans, and all contributed to the success of the colonies, and of the United States.
