Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg, Virginia, USA
Colonial Williamsburg is a wonderful living-history museum and private foundation presenting part of a historic district in the city of Williamsburg, Virginia, United States. Colonial Williamsburg’s 301-acre Historic Area includes buildings from the eighteenth century, as well as 17th-century, 19th-century, Colonial Revival structures and more recent reconstructions.
The Historic Area is an interpretation of a colonial American city, with exhibits of dozens of restored or re-created buildings related to its colonial and American Revolutionary War history. Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area’s combination of restoration and re-creation of parts of the colonial town’s three main thoroughfares and their connecting side streets attempts to suggest the atmosphere and the circumstances of 18th-century Americans. Colonial Williamsburg’s motto has been “That the future may learn from the past”.
