This room is named for English Captain John Smith, who explored the Chesapeake Bay between 1607 and 1609. Captain Smith and his crew mapped the bay and rivers and documented American Indian communities. In August 1609, he and his party stayed for 3 days on, or near, the site of the current Swanendele Inn. He had a major role in the founding of the Jamestown and the Virginia colony but is perhaps best remembered for his relationship with native princess Pocahontas. Commemorating the 400th Anniversary of his Chesapeake voyages, Congress established the Captain John Smith Water Trail, including St. Jerome’s Creek as overlooked and honored by this room.
