Frank da Cruz, Bronx NYSeashore State Park was built by the New Deal Civilian Conservation Corps in 1933-1940 on the site of the landing of the English colonists in 1607 who would found the first permanent English settlement in the New World, Yorktown. The park's name was changed to First Landing State Park in recognition of the 400th anniversary of the landing. Located on Cape Henry in Virginia Beach, the 2770-acre park is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and includes 20 miles of trails and 1.5 miles of Chesapeake Bay beach frontage.
