In addition to the old tower there is a church. The original church was built about 1640, but had a somewhat eventful life - it was burned in the Bacon's Rebellion of 1676, repaired and then abandoned about 75 years later and fell into a complete ruin.
In 1907, the National Society of Colonial Dames of America erected a reconstruction church (the fifth one on the site) next to the original tower. This is the structure which visitors to Jamestown view today. The cobblestone foundations of the 1617 church, together with the brick foundations of the 1639 church, may be viewed under glass within the walls of the present church.
