Facts about the James River

The James River is 348 miles long, and is attached to an upper tributary called the Jackson River, which is 96.4 miles long.

The river was originally called the Powhatan River, named for the chief of the Powhatan Confederacy of Native American tribes. The English colonists named it the "James" river after King James I of England.
