7. Jamestown made it, until another town was chosen as the new Virginia capital

Jamestown served as the capital of the colony for 83 years, from 1616 until 1699.

In 1676, the town was deliberately burned during Bacon's Rebellion, though it was quickly rebuilt. In 1699, the capital was relocated from Jamestown to what is today Williamsburg, after which Jamestown ceased to exist as a settlement, existing today only as an archaeological site.

Roanoke didn't make it.
