Kecoughtan, Virginia, takes the fifth place on our list of America's oldest cities, and is the third city in Virginia on the list. Settled in 1610 by the same English settlers who founded Jamestown, Kecoughtan was originally home to the Kikotan Algonquin Native American tribe. This was the place where English settlers first made contact with Virginia's native inhabitants. While initial meetings were relatively peaceful, by 1610, the English settlers had either killed all of the Native Americans or driven them away from their homes and out of the city. By 1690, Kecoughtan was absorbed by the larger city of Hampton, Virginia, and remains a part of its municipality today.
