Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic TrailIndians cultivated fertile lands along the James River for centuries before the colonists arrived in 1607. They grew squash, corn, and beans to supplement their diet of native plants, fish, shellfish, and game. When the soils at a house site became depleted, the Indians allowed the area to replenish itself while they established a new dwelling and agricultural plot elsewhere.
