A Look Back at Colonial Times

Your history comes alive experience begins at the Capitol building in Williamsburg, Virginia. Your tour starts in the Courtroom and House of Burgesses that were once the center of political events leading to the American Revolution. Next, you’ll get to relive history through the eyes of a tradesperson. See how flax, cotton and wool are converted into wonderful fabric at the Weaver, meet woodworkers who make doors, windows, shutters and cupboards at the Joinery, and feel many of the fabrics and garments worn by Colonial Americans at the Tailor. You’ll then be led to the elegant home of prominent attorney and thinker George Wythe for a tour before meeting up with Founding Father Alexander Hamilton himself. You’ll end your history-filled day with an excellent lunch at DoG Street Pub, located in a transformed 80-year-old bank.

Transportation will be provided to and from Williamsburg Resort and our experience. Please note some walking will be involved with this event (8 on a scale of 1–10*), which may include steps.
