Phooey.  National Parks are designated, so you can't just clinch the place. :P

Maybe I'm just missing it, but...

Quote from: WikipediaIn 1932, George C. Gregory discovered the foundation of the first capitol building, circa 1646, at Jamestown.[7] In 1934, Colonial National Historical Park obtained the remaining 1,500-acre (610 ha) of the island and partnered with Preservation Virginia to preserve the area and present it to visitors in an educational manner. The site was designated Jamestown National Historic Site on December 18, 1940, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places on October 15, 1966. The National Park Service maintains the remaining portions of the island with recreations of building foundations of the post-1610 Jamestown port town. In 1957, with the site's 350th anniversary in mind, New Discoveries at Jamestown was published.

Let me know if you can find the Jamestowne NHS on the list.

Let me know if you can find the Jamestowne NHS on the list.

Jamestown NHS is indeed listed under the 27 Affiliated Areas.  Of course, it is part of an educational museum organization chartered by the Commonwealth of Virginia, now operated by the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation.  All of the Affiliated Areas were designated by Congress but are managed by organizations other than the National Park Service.  Therefore, Rothman is correct that what is generally referred to as "Jamestown" is not managed by the National Park Service, even though it is officially "on their list".

For those that haven't been to "Jamestown Settlement", it is intended to be a replica of the original settlement plus a nice indoor museum.  It is located on the western part of the island at Church Point, but not where the original settlement of Jamestowne was located.  The "original Jamestown settlement" is believed to have been located further east on the island, which in fact, is operated by the Colonial National Historic Park (so that part of the Wikipedia article is techincally correct, albeit somewhat misleading).  If you venture out that far, it is a road worth clinching (and stopping to read the historic signs), even though there is nothing left of Jamestown to actually see.

Rothman

When people talk about the NPS' "list," it's typically their 429 sites, which does not include the affiliated areas.

Still, it gets messy.  I mean, for the purposes of this thread, BLM and USFS and NWRs probably shouldn't be discounted.

Big debates in travel clubs have happened over what is considered a "national park." :D
