Colorful Colonial Williamsburg Virginia


Williamsburg was everything I imagined and more! How lucky I feel to live in a part of our country which is filled with such amazing history. From the pageantry of a drum and fife parade, to the quiet tasks of daily life in the 18th century, this historic colonial town has it all! 



We strolled along and chatted with those of the revolutionary era...




and watched the local militia perform gun and cannon salutes.




We could purchase goods used in colonial times...





...and witness first hand how they were made.



We attended a public audience with Patrick Henry...



...had the opportunity to watch General George Washington review the troops...


...and hear the Marquis de Lafayette address the Allied American Army.





From the businesses of the day,


 and private homes and gardens...



...to a walk down Duke of Gloucester Street, our American history is very much alive and well in Colonial Williamsburg!

  1. I adore Colonial Williamsburg. I lived outside Washington DC in my later teens and loved our field trips to Williamsburg. So much rich history.

  9. Loved you pictures. My sister works for Colonial Williamsburg. She even rented a private home a few steps from Duke of Gloster St. I'll bet she knows most of the people in costume. Her job is to schedule them. I love visiting her. So much to do and see.

  12. I would really like to visit Colonial Williamsburg some day. It looks like autumn is the time to go as all the fall foliage in your photos is spectacular. I knew that it was a living history place, but I didn't expect to be so thorough and include militia men.
